[99-C9] Consensus: Add a field to Unihan.txt called "kIICore" that will track the collection ID and set of IICore. It will represent a "catalog property".
[99-C10] Consensus: UTC wishes IICore to be versioned, and once included a character should never be removed from the collection.
[99-C11] Consensus: Consensus 99-C11 is void.
[99-C12] Consensus: The sense of the UTC is that the CTT proposal for Hangul ordering in document L2/04-108 (WG2 N2715) brings forth many useful and important ideas, however it would be a substantive change and therefore requires more in-depth technical analysis before proceeding. Therefore, UTC does not agree to changing the default table in response this proposal at this time.
[99-C13] Consensus: The proposal in L2/04-109 (WG2 N2716) has not been linguistically substantiated and would have significant performance penalty. Thus it should not be incorporated into the default table.
[99-C14] Consensus: The proposal in L2/04-110 (WG2 N2717) has not been linguistically substantiated and would have significant performance penalty. Thus it should not be incorporated into the default table.
[99-C15] Consensus: The proposal in L2/04-111 (WG2 N2718) has not been linguistically substantiated and would have significant performance penalty. Thus it should not be incorporated into the default table. We are open to additional clarifications on the informal specification of Thai ordering in given in Annex C2 of 14651.
[99-C16] Consensus: Accept the proposal to change the collation order for Greek Letter (capital and small) San to its historical order as given in L2/04-034.

Motion 99-M5 carries.
[99-C34] Consensus: UTC does not oppose the encoding of the DPRK 106 compatibility characters, unless contrary evidence is brought forward.
[99-C35] Consensus: UTC opposes the inclusion of a new character for the umlaut/trema distinction. UTC suggests to DIN that they use CGJ to distinguish umlaut from trema.
[99-M6] Motion: When for German a distinction needs to be maintained for sorting between umlaut and trema, that trema should be represented by a CGJ followed by combining diaeresis, and that collation tables should be weighted appropriately.
