What has copyright to do with this?

And regardless of whay you say, both Bengali and Assamese are well
supported in most leading operating systems - Microsoft's Windows
(AFAIK), and most of recent GNU/Linux distributions. If any OS does
not support your language, you should get in touch with developers of
that OS.

Of course, if the developers say that something is wrong with the
Unicode standards, of course, you can bring up that issue here.

I am not speaking for the UTC. Or my employer (which is not the UTC,
BTW). I am speaking for myself.
