I only saw it as the simple equation "Membercomany1 + Membercompany2 =
Consortiumcompany" (that is, the sum of its individual members), with
relevant new sw packages/upgrades promoted by Unicode members as just
that: as approved implementations of the standard they 'consort' to
create, and for there to be a growing registry to match, but I see now
that was either wishful thinking, or thinking too far ahead, which can
often happen.
