Needless to say, the project editor for 10646 who has been pushing the can down the road for EVER concerning the proposed 'A78F LATIN LETTER MIDDLE DOT' would appreciate such production. As RichardW has shown before it is just an additional use case along many other middle dots scenario. It does not seem wise to finalize decision concerning the encoding of another middle dot unless clarification is brought concerning the de facto unification of middle dot, ano telia, and the British decimal point. If some dis-unification is considered all these aspects should be taken into account.
