Re: New Membership Category

   Specialist members will have full access to the member areas of the
   Unicode web and ftp sites. They can participate freely in UTC
   meetings as non-voting members, and they will receive a discount at
   Unicode conferences. This new membership category is priced at
   just $600 per year.

`Just $600'... This excludes many interested private persons,
e.g. students, which do a lot of work in the Internet community.

Please don't forget that not everyone is supported by either a
university or a company which usually provide a budget for its
employees to do such things.

This commercial aspect of the Unicode organization is very
unfortunate. I suggest that you offer free memberships to private
persons who are really interested -- they could e.g. submit a research
paper (or what they are planning to research) to get this membership.
