    On reflection I realise that is not always true. Once, a few years
    back when I was still a novice in the encoding business I submitted a
    character proposal to the UTC only, where it was rejected, and the
    proposal document never did get forwarded to WG2 for consideration
    there (even if the proposal were to have been rejected by WG2 as well,
    at least the document would have been publicly available for future
    reference, which, as has already been stated, is not the case with
    documents submitted to the UTC only). I never made that mistake again.
