    They are normative, but not immutable. Please read the stability policy
    (item #4) carefully -- it does not prohibit changes regarding case
    mappings provided such changes do not impact character identity.

    Obviously now that we know that the uppercase C-stroke is used, we do
    want to get it added. It can't be added this afternoon, however -- the
    process just doesn't work that way. We don't need to spend a lot of time
    here convincing ourselves it would be better to add it.
