    And he also, explicitly propose to encode SOUND VALUES, to which
    everybody can apply his/her own glyphs – if this not, what contradicts
    encoding principles?

    Bakonyi is the only one in the community who wants to exclude the set
    of modern (from the early 20th century on) set.

    > Suppose two parties disagree on the inventory, A saying that a text element x needs to be encoded, while B saying it should not. If B's claim is that x can be represented by some sequence of characters there is consensus to encode, then that's something that needs to be resolved. But if B's claim is that x doesn't merit representation while A has a clear use requirement, then the committees may disregard B's objections.

    Latter case is in effect.

    > I assume you mean that they *could* be represented as sequences of characters which there is consensus to encode. If so, then it does sound like that would contradict one of the encoding principles.

    They can be represented as sequences of characters.
