Note that the first paragraph of my response below is factual, verifiable
information (details available by request from anyone who asks for them
offline). The rest of my response is tongue and cheek humor based on these
provable, verifiable facts, meant only to provide a lighter side to the
"conflict" that has dominated this thread....

Another good reason to not deprecate it is that it was requested by an
organization that represents Tamil interests in Sri Lanka, Singapore,
Malaysia, and Tamilnadu. The "oppressors" are therefore not Unicode, and not
Uma, and not I (though Uma and I helped to press for good usage samples!).
Srivas himself is a member of this organization, and the very working group
that produced the proposal. In fact, he even was involved in many of the
email list conversations about U+0bb6.
Therefore not only oppressed himself, but also viciously did not properly
inform himself of what he was doing when he did it.
People who are not within his reach are likely safe for the time being. But
someone may want to intervene before he beats himself up for these crimes
(since he knows where he lives, he is simply not safe from himself).
(flashing back to a Monty Python skit where Colin "Bomber" Harris managed to
beat his opponent unconscious in an important wrestling match where he faced
himself in the ring)
