And we *DID* have a call on this mailing list whether people wanted to have the three codepoints added, and the consensus was that they should NOT be added.

That is why the 5892bis document looks like it does.

My first version had added things to G.

But I did take a step back based on the consensus on this mailing list.

Once again, why are we opening this up?

Only if I see consensus on that, I will as editor ask (again) what should be added to G, if anything.

And we can see if the consensus this time will be different from last time.

Do we really have to do that?
