This is not the case. *I* mentioned free variation selectors
during both of the ICE meetings. They weren't discussed at any
great length, precisely because I and the other encoding experts
did not feel that they were applicable to the basic encoding issues
They may have a place in some future refinement of Cuneiform, but
only for representation of notable variants of the *statically*
encoded list of base signs, *not* for the kind of dynamic sign
building that you have been advocating.
