    Well, CLDR and ISO 15924 are both about locales, and not about character
    encoding. And the original proposal which Rick postponed a decision on
    was for a separate list for locale discussions.

    If this discussion does indeed come to an end soon, I will be happy. But
    I will continue to be unhappy if James' point is ignored and this list
    continues to be the forum for discussion of typographical niceties of a
    standard that I have no interest in.

    And in case anyone is thinking of complaining about how much discussion
    of Phoenician there has been on this list, I did try to divert the
    discussion to the Hebrew list right at the start, but everyone else
    wanted to discuss it here.
