    That's too bad, then, really. It should be possible to correct naming
    errors up until the time that those names become official. Those
    names won't become official until March 2008 (if then). How could
    correcting an error at this point in time possibly affect any
    stability guarantees? (That question is rhetorical; the answer is
    obviously that it could not.)

    Meanwhile, here's some gratuitous Ol Chiki text in as yet unofficial
    Unicode. It's taken from one of the examples in N2984.PDF.

    (The question mark in the above text may just
    mark an ink splotch in the original printing.)
    (Some of the space characters in the above text
    may not be inserted properly. Sometimes it's hard to tell.)
    (Oh, and I used the wrongly spelled U+1C78 to
    simulate the raised ellipsises.)
