I'm not sure I get this: 10646 implementations to be produced by [The]
Unicode [Consortium]? My understanding is that TUC does not produce
implementations; they only produce a standard known as The Unicode
Standard. As for producing the Universal Character Set, they are in the
process of doing that in concert with WG2, and are working with exactly the
same timetable as WG2.

The point of this thread escapes me.
