    Looking at:
    at the bottom of page 5, you see some stacked letters (i.e. two
    letters of equal size vertically aligned). See also attached image.

    As the two letters of each pair have the same size, combinations of
    base letters and combining letters above are not appropriate.

    If you had to propose these letters for Unicode, would you
    a.) propose a "stacking joiner",
    b.) or would you collect all pairs and propose them as individual
        character each,
    c.) or would you collect all the letters which occur below and propose
        them as bottom stacking letters, and do the same for top stacking
    d.) or has anybody a better idea?
