JIS X0212 is the `Additional Kanji character set', not a superset of X0208.
If this is a typo of JIS X0221, that is the translated version of ISO/IEC
10646. Certain part of the rationale is dedicated to the reason why X0208
is to be maintained apart from X0221(10646).
I rather hesitate to dabete on X0208 here, as we would like the debate be
shared by all the reviewers (many of them are not joining Unicode-ML).
We are planning to re-distribute the proposals and questions (with answers)
to the reviewers.
# Or do you recommend to maintain a mailing-list for debate ?
thank you very much indeed for your interest
