    Just FYI, this report first came to me on August 13, in time to forward
    to the UTC since they were meeting last week. It ended up as L2/09-298,
    and the UTC has already discussed it.

    I was given an action to respond to Mr Sharma, with effectively the same
    response that Michael has given below. We are already in contact with
    the people who worked on the original Vedic proposal, and people will be
    discussing possible annotations if appropriate. Note that this character
    already has a gloss "vaidika saamagaana yogakaala" that was (apparently)
    provided by Gov't of India during the proposal process.
