Just FYI, the control codes were a rather controversial feature of that
proposal. It would also be worth surveying (again) the use of controls in
existing Egyptian implementations.

UTC at last check was still in favor of encoding the Gardiner set, minus
control codes, just as soon as someone is able to come up with a revised
proposal for the 700+ characters. Funding and time are the current
inhibitors to work on the proposal, as I understand it. And I'm afraid at
this point, Egyptian is nowhere near being encoded.
