    I support Mr Everson's point, as quoted by Mark (below) on that
    long-standing issue, which is one on which I thought NSAI's views had
    been put to CLDR years ago, and which I recommend be done now, by joint
    request from NSAI/ISOTC46IG (of which I am Convener) and NSAI/ICTSCC/SC
    (of which he is).
