    AFII was the registration authority originally named in ISO/IEC 10036:1996.
    I hadn't realised this had been updated. The original had been prepared by
    JTC 1/SC 18, and that SC doesn't even exist anymore. Apparently, the
    corregenda were prepared by SC 34, "Document description and processing
    languages", for which ANSI is the secretariat.

    I note that the on-line listing of registered glyphs appears currently to
    include only glyphs relevant for CJKV.

    I also note that there is still a charge for registering glyphs: US$100 for
    up to 100 glyphs.
