I understand that you mean with "Unicode members" just everyone who
subscribed to the firstname.lastname@example.org list., and not e.g.
only the people mentioned on http://www.unicode.org/consortium/memblogo.html
In that case you should be aware that the list is open to everyone.
And even http://www.unicode.org/consortium/memblogo.html only guarantees
that the member in question payed his dues.
Yet I myself consider it very cool to be mentioned on one page together with
Adobe, Microsoft, and the Government of Pakistan.
