    Thank you for providing the links. This is very interesting.
    I refer to the pdf document.
    On page 23 is the following, which appears after some text about a proposal for encoding some items in plane 1 of Unicode.
    5.2. Interchange
    When using Unicode for interchange, plane 15 is used. This second
    shift results in a character range from U+FD800 to U+FE277. The
    range is larger due to the additional Binary SignWriting characters.
    (Appendix B).
    end quote
    What is the status of the proposal to encode in plane 1 please?
    For example, is it on the agenda for the meeting of the Unicode Technical Committee that is due to take place in February 2011?
