And to make matters worse BKA- SHOG YIG MGO [U+0F0A] is actually the term for
the "starting flourish for giving a command", and should thus be the name of the
character proposed at U+0FD0, except that U+0FD0 now has to make do with a
subtly different name as its proper name has already been appropriated by the
character with the opposite meaning ... definitely one for the Unicode Book of
Incidentally, shouldn't the proposed name for U+0FD0 be "TIBETAN MARK BKA- SHOG
GI MGO RGYAN" (BKA- + space) not "TIBETAN MARK BSKA-SHOG GI MGO RGYAN" (BSKA- +
no space) ?
