Yes but not indicating its existence and the fact that Unicode will want to
encode it too would be an error if the ISO/IEC 10646 working group will vote
against the proposal, by thinking it should be unified with the cent sign.
After all, the public review is to expose the pro and con arguments for its
encoding, and a cased pair is clearly an argument for the separate encoding of
the lowercase letter, even if a formal proposal for the uppercase letter is
accepted later by Unicode. I think that to simplify the procedures, both
characters should be proposed together, and immediately given the correct case
This solves the possible presentation issues which would have happened in the
past with the CENT sign and the newly proposed CEDI sign as well (because this
last character, a uppercase version of the CENT sign, already has a accepted
variant form which looks exactly like the CENT sign).
I posted my comment to the UTC administrative report form.
