    I do not recommend haste/rush.
    Michael has uploaded the proposal at mid-night 23:39 HRS.
    What if there were other proposals submitted to Unicode on that day?
    Submitted none is great!
    If not I am afraid, it will raise questions on Unicode's professional-moral.

    I think that this day and age, and in view of the importance and urgency of
    the issue as pointed out by several, there is no reason why both Unicode and
    ISO could not nor should not conduct an e-mail vote on Michael's proposal
    and be done with it.

    What you call "experience with the EURO SIGN" he calls it brain-dead :-')

    An hour or so.

    Thank you. As I said, having had experience with the EURO SIGN, I
    believe it is imperative that matters like this be handled quickly so
    that implementors can get to work.
