[109-C29] Consensus: UTC approves the encoding of four Qur'anic Arabic characters with names and codepoints as in L2/06-358, U+0617 - U+061A. They should be classified as confusables for domain names. The four characters are:

[109-C30] Consensus: UTC accepts solution 2a in document L2/06-357 (i.e., to fix the glyphs and annotations that the character is a misnomer for "beautiful omega"). The two broad omegas are covered in a separate proposal.
[109-C31] Consensus: UTC accepts solution 3a of document L2/06-357 without the addition of cyrillic capital letter OU (see page 5) for Cyrillic "uk". This amounts to a recommendation to add two monograph Uk characters. (See also further proposal below.)

The author should resubmit this proposal with the deletion of characters xx20 and xx22, and a new code position for xx25 (in an area with other non-spacing marks). Also remove xx27 and xx28 from the proposal before resubmitting.
