OK, now I'm really confused. Michael Everson earlier in this thread (8

Then Ken Whistler states (9 April) in relation to U+262B:

So do character names once assigned get changed or don't they?
Also, as the originator of the original thread (I-Ching Hexagrams), and
at the risk of re-awakening the rather cranky sleeping dragon earlier
disturbed by Eric Rasmussen, I was wondering about Michael's other

I'm curious about whether the proposers at any stage considered using a
similar character name convention to that used for the naming of the
Braille characters? (U+2800 - U+28FF)?
