I don't remember seeing such a table when I reviewed ISO 9:1995, but I
don't have it handy. What Yury describes certainly rings a bell, so I
feel like I have seen special rules for language-specific
transliteration in some source. Is there someone who can confirm by
looking at the standards document? I'm a few thousand kilometers from
the library where I had consulted it.
If table B is part of GOST, then it can be submitted separately, once
we can nail down what it entailed.
