    Nicely put, Erkki.

    The average NB representative in WG2 does not have expertise (or
    interest) in sorting out competing claims in unfamiliar scripts. Pushing
    these disagreements to the WG2 level looks like a bit of an abuse of the

    Unless all the parties involved are at that meeting, I wouldn't know how
    this would change the outcome. If two of of the three parties are
    present, you might get a selection of a "majority" proposal. In any
    case, I think you are right that the outcome would need to be slated for
    the following meeting.

    Given the nature of the script there appears to be no defensible reason
    why any this should be hurried along - especially in the absence of a
    clear consensus of a wide range of experts (or ideally all of them).
