Probably not.  But some parsers use their own tables.
It really isn't too hard: a table of characters valid
at the beginning of a name, and another table of characters
valid anywhere in a name, excluding the ones in the first

The main issue is that if combining characters are allowed
to be first in a name, then they will attach to the <
character instead of standing alone, by Unicode rules.
