Yes, I'm sure. I'm referring to the revised code points in the FPDAM text, not
the obsolete PDAM text.

It is always risky to depend on code points in proposals at the PDAM stage,
as there is a significant chance (as for Myanmar) that they may undergo
rearrangement in the resolution of national ballot comments. I hope
no one is trying to implement Burmese based on the PDAM text.
