But it is not in the charter, quite the contrary. The proposed charter
is written as if there was a consensus on the IDN problems (there is
not, besides the limitation to Unicode 3.2 and may be the bidi). No
work is planned to discuss the problems, only solutions are present in
the charter, already decided even before the WG exists.
