    Well, duh, I guess, MichKa. You know I was one of those who actively
    encoded Tibetan in the first place and I did talk to the Tibetans
    during the meetings. (It was rather pleasant doing so.)

    What Ken said, maybe rhetorically, was to ask if Unicoders thought
    that the "introduction of significant normalization problems into
    Tibetan (for everyone) is a worthwhile tradeoff", and, since many
    Unicoders were not at the meeting, I thought it best to comment.
