The Working Group just discussed `ic unit character basis`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: closing this issue as no-change`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;fantasai> Topic: ic unit character basis<br>
&lt;fantasai> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2798<br>
&lt;frremy> astearns: who want to take the IC unit issue?<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: I don't think it's super important because IC isn't implemented yet<br>
&lt;frremy> florian: not in any browser, but maybe some epub/print impl<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: the glyph should be chinese as I understand<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: I propose the Yuan "eternity" character is more common than the one currently used<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: so I proposed to switch to this instead of the "water" char<br>
&lt;frremy> fantasai: why not, but we also need to change writing mode<br>
&lt;frremy> fantasai: we just need to make sure it is always full-width, and common to all cjk fonts<br>
&lt;frremy> myles: how many fonts that support both of these chars support different advances for them?<br>
&lt;frremy> florian: that should be excessively rare<br>
&lt;frremy> myles: then I am fine with this<br>
&lt;frremy> ??: I don't think this will be a compat issue<br>
&lt;frremy> fantasai: I agree there should be no compat<br>
&lt;astearns> s/??/xidorn<br>
&lt;myles> s/then I am fine with this/I understand./<br>
&lt;frremy> fantasai: could be make one version of writing mode do one char, then the next one switch to the other?<br>
&lt;dbaron> the unicode codepoints for these characters differ by 4, fwiw :-)<br>
&lt;frremy> no<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: I am fine leaving the char as is<br>
&lt;frremy> myles: is it gonna be likely to have a font that supports one vs the other?<br>
&lt;frremy> heycam: not if you dont artificially limit<br>
&lt;frremy> florian: for newspaper, you could have a few glyphs just for the name of the newspaper<br>
&lt;frremy> florian: but any font for a normal text would include both<br>
&lt;frremy> RESOLVED: closing this issue as no-change<br>
&lt;frremy> fantasai: (largely for process reason, changing writing-modes is too much pain)<br>
