AFII font for UCS:2000

ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2/N2047 says that AFII has prepared a font that
covers all non-CJK characters of UCS:2000, which will be used to print
the ISO standard. It also says that AFII does not exist any more.

What will happen to this potentially very useful reference font? Is
there a chance that it could be donated to the public?

It should not be too difficult to find people willing to continue
maintenance of this font if it is made available freely. Actually, I
myself, and I guess also some of my collaborators in the XFree86 Unicode
font project, would probably be very happy to assist in maintaining it
as a public resource for printing character-set reference tables and
many other applications.

Who were the members of AFII and who is in charge of the remaining AFII
resources now?

Would it be possible and feasible to revive AFII as an open volunteer
