You absolutely do not need to be a representative of any company, government,
organization, or group. I am in no way associated with any associated entity
and successfully proposed a script with ~150 characters. All it takes is a
dedication to serious research, a large amount of time to dedicate to the
process, and the tenacity and perseverance to see a long and arduous process
through to the end. The ability to produce PDFs is helpful, but not necessary,

You can take a look at a large number of proposal documents from June by
following links at the document register
/n4000.pdf . Note that many of the documents are commentaries, opinions, or
discussions of proposals. Look for any documents called something like
"Proposal to encode X" or "Preliminary Proposal to encode X". Note that
preliminary proposals will necessarily be incomplete.
