    Isn't that what I wrote, if you had not cut the line just there ?

    Well may be I was not very precise about the current status of *this* character, after all I don't participate to
    the balloting processes and can't vote, and I don't have access to all the internal discussions that occur between
    ISO and UTC full members, with most of them being unpublished, or being quite difficult to follow fro mthe web if
    you are not a member

    (that's exactly the kind of benefits that full members can get when joining Unicode, according to the Unicode site
    itself, not only they may get a voting right, but they are also given acess to discussion tracking documents, and to
    internal discussion lists and various communication tools, or can request changes very early in the process even
    before the discussion draft documents are published; we don't see most of these internal drafts that are certainly
    initially full of bugs or imprecisions and unsolved questions pending replies from other members or from experts
    around the world that may need to be seeked and contacted).

    Thank you anyway for pointing that Unicode 5.2 beta is also now very advanced in its current stage, I had not read
    it before.
