    Is it, as outcome of the whole discussion thread until now,
    advisable to propose the following:

    1. To add informative notes in the printed standard to:
       U+0485 COMBINING CYRILLIC DASIA PNEUMATA
          usually displays left of the base letter when applied
             to a capital letter
          also for use with Latin letters
       U+0486 COMBINING CYRILLIC PSILI PNEUMATA
          usually displays left of the base letter when applied
             to a capital letter
          also for use with Latin letters
          forms the "egyptological yod" when applied to
             U+0049/U+0069

    2.) To add the two following "named character sequences":
        U+0049 U+0486; LATIN CAPITAL LETTER EGYPTOLOGICAL YOD
        U+0069 U+0486; LATIN SMALL LETTER EGYPTOLOGICAL YOD
