    What I truly fear is that the Unicode community will go far out of its
    way to "help" the Indian government choose a glyph, and the Indian
    government and others, noticing this, will look to Unicode as a vehicle
    to endorse and legitimize this novel symbol, not yet designed.

    Unicode should follow its own rules and encode the winning symbol, if
    any, only when it becomes evident that the thing will actually see
    real-world usage. Remember the story about the Russian ruble symbol.
