    You are grossly misinterpreting what happened, presumably because you are not fully familiar with ISO process, and how Unicode relates to it. WG2 considers proposals that some national body or one of its liaison organizations presents to it. As a liaison organization, Unicode did not support such a decision, so would not have presented it to WG2. The committee within the US national body, many members of which are also members of Unicode, either was not asked to consider such a proposal, or reached the same decision as UTC (I haven't reviewed the minutes to see which it was), and so would not have presented it to WG2. Any other national body could have submitted such a proposal to WG2, but none so far has done so.
