Just for clarification, and hoping to avoid pedantry on my own part,
I'd just like to add the additioal fact that from the character
coding point of view, to my knowledge, NNI (the Dutch national member
body of ISO) never requested IJ as a separate character to be
included in ISO/IEC 10646-1:2000.
If it did request it, it was many years ago, and NNI must have
accepted the consensus arrived at in ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2.
