    I have read the short proposal and my answer is YES, of course, the UTC
    should accept these two characters. Keeping LATIN SMALL LETTER AT and
    COMMERCIAL AT separate will keep internet protocolls sane. Unifying
    the two will cause potential damage depending on the locale (guess of
    @ being capitalized and mapped to something strange ...)
