A quick reply as this might get misinterpreted/out of hand.

Then I obviously failed to explain in my last email what I was trying to
accomplish, my apologies for that. But please also do not jump to
conclusions, I do not like to think you took my email as a game to work
against the unicode consortium or what it has strived to achieve.
It may be obvious from your point of view, since you are knee-deep
(hopefully not chin-deep ;)) into this matter, how the Unicode Consortium
works and what the goals are. However, for people such as myself who
use/work with Unicode and read parts from the site, the mailinglist, the
standard I cannot help but understand where the confusion comes from.
I thought my email was constructive criticism (I prefer observation in this
case) since I am, by all means, a Unicode newbie, lest of all privvy to the
inner workings of the standard or the consortium's policy.
This also makes it so that I cannot always offer replacement text due to
missing a large understanding of the entire effort or the standard. That's
why you are one of the experts on this matter, right? ;)
