To wit: U+2254 ≔ COLON EQUAL and U+2A74 (⩴) DOUBLE COLON EQUAL
In a sense they belong to the same class as "lower ten" being an
ALGOL character and an ALGOL meta-character.
What was the convincing argument for their inclusion?
PS. I've changed the proposed character name- as printed, it did not
descend as much as the subscript digits would, if at all, as
all-capital drum printers and tele-typewriters had very little space
under the baseline.
PS. I Started writing a proposal and will post my humble attempt at it
(is .odf OK?) shortly.
