For those of you who may have missed Julie Allen's response to this

The UTC editorial committee has been actively culling useful answers
to questions posed on this list, and we are working on rolling out
a more extensive and detailed list of questions and answers on our FAQ,
organized better. We would do that tomorrow, if we could. But there are
practical issues in staging various updates to the site.

Patience, everyone. You will soon seen a marked improvement in the
FAQ on the Unicode website. Everyone is getting tired of having
to answer the same questions over and over. Well, maybe not Marco yet,
though his suggestion hints at the beginning of fatigue! ;-)
