The Tamil encoding will *not* be changed. The encoding as it is is
adequate to represent modern Tamil. It is not "unnecessarily
complex". Nor is it something that WG2 or UTC cooked up to make life
difficult for Tamils. The Tamil encoding is based on the ISCII
encoding for Tamil.
There is no reason to wish to change the Tamil encoding. The very
suggestion that it should be changed is, in my opinion, irresponsible.

I do not believe that a Yahoo discussion group is the place where
formal RFCs are published.

I have a technical comment. If you care about Tamil, you will abandon
any attempt to change the Tamil encoding in Unicode.
