    1. I guessyou are speaking of language standards. If you had paid
       attention to what has been told to you so far, the Unicode standard
       is about scripts.

    2. Those "standards", are not mutually exclusive.

    3. There is a publication from the Government of India on the subject.
        Please Search for the phrase "TDIL vishwa bharat" in your
        favourite search engine. (no, not the one which searches contents
        of your hard disk).

    If I understand things, the Unicode standard for the Bangla (that is
    what the Government of India calls it) language is reasonably matured,
    and people use it, without complaint.

    > "Bengali" does not look like an English name, but could be Englo-Indian

    Does it matter?
