I don't see how you get to "blocking". I wanted to encourage you to  
explore possible needs for another major romanization.

I have nothing against "wadegile" and approve it herewith.

I approve "pinyin" too. For a while I wondered about "hypinyin" or  
"pinyinhy" -- if specifying Hanyu is *really* necessary; I didn't see  
consensus. Frankly to me Pinyin means only Hanyu Pinyin and if there  
are other varieties THOSE could be indicated by XXpinyin or pinyinXX.

I don't really care to delay these until 4646bis is out of the oven,  
since you good people can't seem to agree about its content. (I don't  
see an abundance of good faith in your discussions, alas.)  
Accordingly, if approving them now will cause grandfathering, so be  
it. That's not Mark's fault, or mine.


Let the registration begin.
