Leaving aside implementation costs - has anyone ever come up with a good
estimate of the cost per character for the development of the Unicode / ISO
10646 standards in terms of man hours of experts and their long-suffering
secretaries, the office space they use, cost of attending and hosting UTC, WG2
and other meetings, cost of producing and distributing documents for proposals
etc, communications charges - and a whole host of other things?

(And maybe there should also be an estimate of all additional the time & work
many people have put in to these standards without getting paid for it.)
