I guess my problem was that this was the first WG2 meeting I had seen where so many proposals were deferred. But when I wrote that initial e-mail, I didn't even know they had been deferred, and I assumed (incorrectly) that they had been rejected for various reasons.

Now that you mention it, it does seem like there were a lot more proposals than normal. But with the next meeting not until February, won't there be even more to deal with then? (I seem to recall a few proposals that just kept getting deferred for years until they were abandoned, but I can't for the life of me remember which.)

The part of the picture you may not be seeing is all the characters that _did_ get encoded this week. Different national bodies voiced priorities, and those priorities were addressed first, and there was only so much time in the week. Of the documents you listed, only N4046 was discussed; one character was accepted, and some national bodies requested additional time to investigate the others.

Is it just me, or did a lot of proposals get shot down at the recent WG2 meeting? I can't find any traces of the characters from N3980, N4011, N4012, N4013R, N4030R, N4068, N4079, or N4089 in the meeting resolutions or Amendment 1 charts. I only see one character from N4046. Were all of these proposals really rejected? Or is there more to the picture that I can't see?

I guess this is more of a WG2 matter than a Unicode matter, but this is the only place I can think of to ask for information.
