    Has a doc been submitted to WG2 explaining in what ways Bakonyi Gbor's proposal runs counter to Unicode / UCS character encoding principles? If so, what is the doc number in the WG2 register?

    Dear Erkki,

    I personally met Bakonyi Gbor on 20th February and discussed this
    matter. Unfortunately I have to say that hes totally unwilling to
    make any compromises, which, considering the lack of respect towards
    Unicodes and general character encoding principles in his proposal,
    as well as ignoring user needs, leads to the conclusion that we can no
    longer consider his proposition as a real alternative.

    Im not happy about that, and I can only hope that WG2 has the wisdom
    and goodwill not to further set back the encoding of Old Hungarian,
    already pending for more than 10 years now, just because the presence
    of multiple inadequate proposals.

    Best regards,
