Apologies; the archives show that none of your previous attempts has been 
forwarded to the mailing list.
Obviously something that was wrong has been put right now.

For all of these, we would like to have included:

- Whether or not it can be used as a MIME text/* character set
   (basically, whether CRLF is a 2-byte sequence encoded as 0x0D0A)
   (this is a requirement on the registration)

- If possible, pointers to a stable specification of the character sets,
   if possible with enough information to permit mapping tables to/from
   ISO 10646 to be constructed.
   (this is a strong recommendation)

The referenced URL returns a 404.

This info can be sent directly to IANA.
Which character sets does this affect?
