Thanks for the updated link (although www.catb.org seems to
work better for some reason).
However, while this proposal, filled out by Eric S. Raymond,
uses the WG2 summary proposal form, there is no evidence that
I can find that this has ever been submitted into either the
WG2 or the UTC/L2 document registers. I've attended every one
of the UTC meetings since February 26, 2002 (the date of
this document), and all but one of the WG2 meetings, and Theban
has never been on the agendas, nor has this document been
distributed for consideration in either committee.
That's what I meant by the "seriously" qualification. A
proposal isn't very serious, from the point of view of the
encoding committees, until it gets into their document
registers and onto their meeting agendas.
P.S. Incidentally, I don't find the rationale stated in the
Raymond proposal to be at all convincing.
