PLEASE Michael, as you are a member of both ISO/TC46/SC2 and
ISO/TC46/SC4/WG1, will you ensure that in future you get your
ISO committees correct, or you will cause considerable confusion.
What you say is true of ISO/TC46/SC4, but not of ISO/TC46/SC2.
ISO/TC46/SC2 has never had anything to do with standardising Coded
Character Sets, nor does it want to.
