There are two separate issues:

   1. Whether Section G should be populated automatically.
   2. Whether draft-faltstrom-5892bis-02.txt makes the correct choice for
   Unicode 6.0.

The WG decided not to pursue #1, the longer-term issue.

The short-term issue is draft-faltstrom-5892bis-02.txt. I was asked to state
why I think it is incorrect. It is because is no compelling reason to break
stability of identifiers in IDNA for this one character. Instead, the
character U+19DA NEW TAI LUE THAM DIGIT ONE should be added as PVALID in
Section G.
