    But what answer do you have to my point, made in more detail elsewhere,
    that it will cause total confusion, and defeat the purposes of Unicode,
    if some people use the new characters and others don't? If such
    confusion is to be avoided, we have to uphold the principle that if new
    characters are added, everyone is expected to use them. Or do you say
    that Russians, Greeks etc don't have to use the Unicode characters
    defined for their scripts but are welcome to continue using legacy
    hacked encodings? That would be a strange position for a Unicode officer
    to hold - and this time you didn't even add that it was your personal
    opinion! ;-)
