Summary:                    "delimited" is incorrect
Description: 
To "delimit" means, in English, to find both start and end.  In Section 2.3
(and perhaps in the rest of the standard, but I am too lazy to check), it
is used incorrectly to mean "find end" only. The meaning is clear from
context, but it is misleading to an engineer who reads the standard for the
first time trying to understand it.  

Moreover, while the "start" of a token is precisely defined, precisely
which character the "end" is, is not.  
Desired Action: 
Change:

in line 74753, "is delimited" to "ends"
in line 74754, "is delimited" to "ends"
in line 74755, "be delimited" to "end"
in line 74761, "be delimited" to "end with the previous character"
in line 74768, "be delimited by" to "end with"
in line 74779, "be delimited by" to "end with"
in line 74782, "be delimited" to "end with the previous character"
in line 74785, "is delimited" to "shall end with it"

I am not listing line 74751, because that whole sentence fragment should
begone and I will address that in another report.
