    Your remark on which I was commenting was:

    During this short period, when I am on this list and receiving
    the enormous volume of mail, I am stating things that I will not be
    around much to state.

    I wasn't suggesting that you haven't been working on relevant issues, or
    not doing useful work. I was commenting on the fact that you appear, by
    your remarks, to be making a temporary appearance on this list. Development
    of the Unicode Standard is a community affair, and if you want to have a
    significant impact on the development of the Standard you need to be an
    active and on-going member of the community, at least for the duration
    needed to make the changes you care about, not just someone that pops into
    town for brief appearances.
