As a person whose mother tongue is Malayalam and
as the main implementor of IndiX, I agree with N Ganesan
that the Cillus should not be given separate code points.
The Unicode review process approved this wrong step.
I had pointed out that the Unicode 4.0 specifications
for Chillaksharams are quite adequate for rendering them
properly. Some people who were for separate code
points raised some semantic arguments. These were eminently
I see that the original Unicode specifications were carefully
crafted and adequate. The later modification like those for
Cillu appear to be the brain child of people who lack the
overall view of the Unicode architecture. Unfortunately
the review process too appears not to rectify deviations
from the uniform architecture and tends to introduce
unnecessary code points.
