Opt Subject: W3C I18N WG comment on PRI319 [I18N-ACTION-501]

The W3C I18N WG discussed the proposed update to TR51 as part of our teleconference
of 24 March [https://www.w3.org/2016/03/24-i18n-minutes.html]. During our discussion,
the WG endorsed my previous personal comment that the use of script subtags to
identify emoji vs. text presentation of emoji characters was inappropriate for
the reasons given.

We also noted that there will be four different mechanisms (VS, CSS, script subtag,
and locale extension) for indicating emoji presentation, including two in language
tags, which may provide for confused presentational behavior.

We have changed the discussion to focus on the locale method, and only mention the script method as being appropriate in limited contexts. See:
