I don't think that was ever in question. I thought the debate was about
resolving on the proper *default* behavior. If with-variant glyphs work
well for the main use-case then it seems an appropriate default.
(Defaults, by definition, are not required to work well in all cases).
Experts at both Adobe and Microsoft have told me that a) 2-3 digits is the
main TCY use-case and b) width-variant glyphs, if any, should be used for
this scenario. So unless we disagree on the feature's main use-case I'm
not sure what prevents a resolution of John's proposal?
