Based on the description from Sarmad and John's followup, that sounds 
fine. However, we need to hear, formally or informally, from The 
Unicode Consortium, before we do so.

It would be fine to hear that they are correcting this in Unicode 5.1 
if they are going to. It would be fine to hear a strong assurance 
that they are correcting this in a future version if they are going 
to. In either case, we would then not need to add an exception.

It would be fine to hear that they do not intend to make the change 
because they don't think it is a correction, but they have no problem 
with us adding this as an exception. We could certainly then add it 
to our exceptions list.

What would be bad to hear from the Unicode Consortium, but we should 
give them an opportunity to say so, is "no, that's wrong, please 
don't make an exception". At that point, the WG needs to decide how 
to move forward on the topic.
