I fail to understand why you think Michael Everson is obliged to post a
link to a revised proposal on his *personal * web site almost the
instant he submits such a document to WG2 - or explain to you or anyone
else why such a link is not there. It simply *is not* a requirement
that people who submit proposals to WG2 or UTC have to provide a link to
such documents from their own personal web pages. If you couldn't find
the document in the WG2 document directory, how was Michael supposed to
provide a link to it until it was posted there by the person who
maintains that site? - even then it is unreasonable for you to expect
him to update his own website right away (or even at all) - or for you
to expect him to provide an explanation if he doesn't.
Anyway if it is a simple revision of a recently submitted document
chances are the new version may simply replace the old and not be
assigned a new document number and file name - in which case the old
link will work.
Also you cannot *expect* "more than wording added to the block
introduction" or anything at all - If you want something along these
lines, make a submission to the editors of TUS who are responsible for
what goes in the block intro - and to the UTC or iso14651 if you have a
proposal about the collation of these characters - don't make demands.
Decisions on these things (block intro / collation) are usually made
only after it has been decided to encode the characters themselves.
