Hmm... I'm finally catching up on mail-list mail from this past week. The
short answer to your question is "no", and others have said that. But, as
Philippe and others have said, you could join the consortium and vote. (And
as far as industry consortia go, Unicode is a great bargain.)
This thread has been going on a long time, and the only reason I'm
bothering to answer now at all is that Philippe's answer also gave some
mis-information that should be cleared up. Philippe wrote:

That is actually incorrect. Liaison members do not get a vote in UTC.
Liaison membership is a courtesy that is extended by invitation to certain
other organizations with which the Unicode Consortium is involved in
standardization efforts. It keeps them tightly in our consultation loop and
us tightly in their loop. You can read about the membership categories and
what they mean here:

Use the reporting form:
or send a letter to the Unicode office.
