    Ngwe summed up (part of) the problem(s) for me in private. Basically what it
    boils down to is that the Burmese Wikipedia is on hold until 5.2 is finished
    and the Aiton and Khamti minority languages get their characters. But from
    what I understand is that that are not characters needed for Burmese itself.
    So basically the page is being put on hold for a milestone
    that will add nothing for Burmese.
