    Haven't been following the 15924 stuff much, but it might well be because
    the person wasn't sure that it was an error. I know that when I find a
    error in Unicode, if I'm certain its an error I'll use the online form to
    report it,
    but if I'm not certain (as for example with the Line Break class of ARABIC
    PERCENT SIGN) I'll ask a question here first to elicit feedback.
