    Good point, Peter.

    But suppose someone like Elaine or myself wants to offer their expertise
    on a specific script or script family as an ongoing commitment. Is there
    a way they can do so without having to receive dozens of messsages every
    day on the Unicode list, the vast majority of which have nothing to do
    with their specific area of expertise?

    Maybe the script specific mailing lists are the answer. But is their
    existence an ongoing commitment, or just a temporary reaction to a
    temporary burst of activity?
