    184 Proposed Update UTS #37, Unicode Ideographic Variation Database (IVD)

    This update to UTS #37 will clarify how Ideographic Variation Sequences
    (IVSes) can be shared across IVD collections, that no IVD collection has
    special status, and that implementers can support any subset of the
    registered IVSes.

    It will further amend the specification to allow duplicate sequence
    identifiers within an IVD collection under particular circumstances, and to
    allow registrants to supply multiple representative glyphs for IVSes in
    their IVD collections. Finally, the registration procedures will be
    strengthened to require registrants to supply representative glyphs for
    registered IVSes and to supply a data file as part of a submission.
