You are talking about "process".
I am talking about the "material" to be processed.
Material here is letters/symbols.
How do you get this material? You discover it.
If ISO first discovers the material then ISO is the discoverer.
If Unicode first discovers the material then Unicode is the discoverer.

If you have done simultaneously then both have discovered.
Your name should be documented somewhere as well.
Say, you have sent to ISO 1 second before Unicode, then ISO discovers.
So did you send simultaneously or one after another?

Discovery is independent of the “long/short/null" method of "process”;
or any method of process, as explained above.

All letters/symbols that existed with ISO before Unicode creation
were not discovered by Unicode.
If Mark wanted to answer, he knew there were less work for him :-')
Hope I have explained;
any question please feel free to ask!

I cannot even imagine the level of misunderstandings you seem to have
on how the process works. New characters are proposed to either
ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2 or the Unicode Technical Committee or
simultaneously to both (like I have done). In all cases they will be
included in ISO/IEC 10646 and The Unicode Standard only after an
agreement has been worked out on the need to encode them and on their
names by both committees. Sometimes this is a very long process, and
it would be wrong to state that some characters are "discovered" by
Incidentally, the character names in the various ISO/IEC 8859 parts
were aligned with those in the 10646/Unicode when those parts were
last updated some ten years ago.
I can only agree with Mark on his suggestion. Also, you have already
been pointed out several times where to find the relevant information.
