    That seems to be exactly what Michael 'as a member of WG2' is saying.

    What if the request to change the Hebrew combining classes came *from* W3C
    and/or IETF? I'm not saying that this is likely, but I'm wondering whether
    they might, in fact, not insist on stability for characters for which
    normalisation is currently broken anyway?

    If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
    are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
    who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
    Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
