My understanding is that stability promises have been made to W3C and IETF
(any others?). I'm also leaning toward asking these organisations if an
exception can be made to fix a broken normalisation for Hebrew, given that
the present normalisation is not useful. If the UTC doesn't want to make
the enquiry, perhaps a consortium of Biblical Hebraicist academic
organisations, publishers and software developers could take the matter to
W3C and IETF and try to obtain a statement that would allow Unicode to make
the change? Perhaps WG2 would also support such a petition?

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.
