There was a brief discussion of plans to encode the Aramaic script in
December 2003 (which slightly surprised me, because I think of Hebrew as
being written in the Aramaic script), and then the Phoenician proposal was
announced in April 2004 under the anodyne title 'New Contribution'. A long
and heated discussion (the 'thread from Hell/Gehenna/Sheol') ensued, which
is why we are asked not to re-open the discussion. The proposal has been
approved. See the archives (e.g.
http://www.unicode.org/mail-arch/unicode-ml/y2004-m04/) for details.
