Hmm...our spec is still going on and UTR#50 is still going on, so I'm hoping to resolve them in the end.

I can't speak for Elika but I'm feeling some uncertainness of UTR#50 process, as some of our feedbacks such as orientation for Egyptian and Yi[1] were not taken seriously and were simply ignored in the 2nd draft.

I don't know what we should do if UTR#50 didn't incorporate our feedbacks and defined something we believe incorrect. We have two more weeks until UTR#50 feedback deadline and I'm willing to do my best to make our feedbacks incorporated. If it turned out to be the case, we need to discuss. I hope not, and it's not too late to start discussion after that, right?
