There might be, although nobody seems to have discussed this point.

I'm initially to blame: I sent an announcement regarding
transliteration standards and internationalization
to lists that Keld Simonsen and Alain La Bonte had identified
as lists with an interest in internationalization.
These lists included sc22wg14@dkuug.dk.

Somebody "group replied" this with a discussion on certain issues
relating to transliateration and transcription, and it carried on
thus. I had not antipated any such discussion on this, although some
useful contacts had been made as a result: after all the announcement
said that there was a tc46sc2@elot.gr email discussion list
specifically on transliteration.

I am now ensuring that any future discussions on this do not include

                                   Yours sincerely
