    And he quotes the ISO Commercial Policy Steering Group:

    "The ISO community should also be compensated for providing the
    intellectual property required to incorporate the value-added
    features into the product."

    Golly, does that mean they'll pay people like me if they get
    royalties from people using ISO/IEC 10646?

    Heh. Of course not.
