IMHO some details of Unicode property support seem unspecified:

1) Assumption: *ALL* Unicode properties and all of their aliases should be supported.

E.g. this will also include the derived properties 'Grapheme_Base' and 'Grapheme_Extent' (missing in Perl 5 - obviously a bug in 'unicore').

2) Syntax of non-boolean properties:

In Perl 5 e.g.

 \p{BidiClass:L} # Left-to-Right
 \p{gc:L}        # General category = Letter

should be in Perl 6 (thx Moritz' suggestion on #perl6):
