Apparently the three Latin ones. But I have clarified my intent in my last
posting and have nothing more to add.

I'll use the third person to summarize.

1. Eric Brunner has complained several times in the past that there are
letters used by some northeastern North American languages which are
missing from the UCS.

2. Michael Everson would like to know what these letters are so that, if
necessary, they can be added to the UCS for the collective utility of all
users and potential users of the UCS.

3. Michael Everson has asked Eric Brunner at least three times, both in
private e-mails and in general discussion on the unicode@unicode.org list,
for details as to what these letters are, or, more effectively, for contact
names and addresses of the experts who are using these letters and/or
developing local solutions in their absence.

4. Michael Everson invites Eric Brunner once again to supply him with this
information, so that progress can be made. This kind of invitation to
discuss further offline has worked quite well for many scripts and letters
which have been added to the UCS since the first edition, and indeed has
become the normal way WG2 and UTC have been proceding with the work of
augmenting the UCS where necessary.
