    I have no firsthand experience with this process, and no standing to say
    anything about it, but my gut feeling is that if an obvious error like
    this can't be corrected in this ballot, then there is no point in having
    a ballot at all.

    Anyone who has implemented the character name OL CHIKI MU TTUDDAG has
    been implementing from a preliminary, not-yet-approved standard, and
    should not expect to be protected by stability guarantees.
