And in fact, the Regional Indicator Symbols were added in Unicode 6.0
(October 2010), more than a year before the proposal to encode US FLAG
as a unitary character was even written. And the non-approval text in
2013 specifically mentioned the RIS as one of the reasons for rejecting
the unitary character. There's no contradiction.
