Oops. Sorry. I didn't mean to.

Let me try to seal it: from the few things I have read I believe that
the early ISO and Unicode drafts had been mutually stimulating and
that a bunch of good ideas from Unicode 1.0 and a bunch of good ideas
from DIS-10646.1 have been merged into the final compatible compromise
ISO-10646/Unicode-1.1 and I was just curious about what has gotten
dropped and why the Unicode Standard lists inconsistent dates.

One of my ultra-German T-shirts reads: "Learning from history. Taking
a stand today. Building a positive future. Action Reconciliation
Service for Peace." - But I can try not to dwell on it.
