  Just for my information, so that I am sure I understand it:

  - is it true that Georgian has no upper/lower case distinction?
  - the proposed charset can be used to write both Latin script and
    Georgian script. Right?

  It seems good to me - sending the draft to internet-drafts@ietf.org will
  make it public for 6 months; it may very well be a Good Thing to publish
  this as an info RFC so that it is permanently available.

  I-D submission is now closed before the IETF; you can send in the
  submission after December 15th.

  Good luck!
