Michael is correct.
There is no guarantee that a character accepted into Unicode will be
accepted into ISO 10646.
Nor is there any guarantee that a character accepted into ISO 10646 will be
accepted into Unicode.
That being said, both committees see the value of synchronization, and have
always worked together towards it. The proposal forms are unified, as are
the policies and procedures. So submission can be to either body. Because
the UTC meets more often, it may be useful to submit there first so as to
get more discussion; and any characters that have unusual properties or
other behavior are best first submitted to the UTC, since that is the place
for the definition of the character properties and algorithms that are
ultimately used by computer systems to support the characters.
