    It will be to WG2 and the UTC.

    New text on the Roadmap for the SIP:

    NOTE: Should Plane 2, the SIP (Supplementary Ideographic Plane) prove
    insufficient for future Han character encoding, it is anticipated
    that further allocations may be provided on Plane 3, which could be
    called the AIP (Auxiliary Ideographic Plane).

    Obviously if WG2 chooses another name and acronym it will be applied
    to the (informative) Roadmaps.
