    Isn't the public review there specially to think about such things?

    It's not too soon to discuss it now, because the most serious issues will
    hapen when the new character will be encoded, possibly with missing or
    incorrect properties.

    I don't know if a formal proposal has been sent to ISO/IEC WG too. May be
    this review is there to allow creating such formal proposal, to be encoded
    later by ISO if it accepts to give it a codepoint, and then accepted too by
    UTC when properties are fixed and usage is properly documented.
