Acceptance of the proposal would at least get the issue out of the way and then
people could get on with other things and choose for themselves whether or not
they wanted to make use the Phoenician characters - or to encode everything
using Hebrew characters. OTOH rejection of the proposal would pretty well mean
that it is never going to be possible for anyone to encode Phoenician text with
Phoenician Unicode characters.
Even if there is only a small minority of people who want Phoenician characters
encoded, encoding them would not prevent the alleged majority who want to use
Hebrew characters to encode Phoenician texts from doing this.
Since a formal proposal has now been submitted, formal objections to that
proposal can also be submitted.
