Implementation Advice

7/3
{AI95-00395-01} {AI05-0185-1} If an implementation chooses to provide implementation-defined operations on Wide_Character or Wide_String (such as collating and sorting, etc.) it should do so by providing child units of Wide_Characters. Similarly if it chooses to provide implementation-defined operations on Wide_Wide_Character or Wide_Wide_String it should do so by providing child units of Wide_Wide_Characters.
7.a/2
Implementation Advice: Implementation-defined operations on Wide_Character, Wide_String, Wide_Wide_Character, and Wide_Wide_String should be child units of Wide_Characters or Wide_Wide_Characters.
