Here are some clues to guide further research on the history.

The annotation in question was added to a draft of the NamesList.txt 
file for Unicode 4.1 on October 7, 2003.

The annotation was not yet in the Unicode 4.0 charts, published in 
April, 2003.

That should narrow down the search for everybody. I can't find specific 
mention of this in the UTC minutes from the relevant 2003 window.

But I strongly suspect that the catalyst for the change was the 
discussion that took place regarding PRI #12 re terminal punctuation:

That document, at least, does mention "Armenian" and U+2024, although 
not in the same breath. That PRI was discussed and closed at UTC #96, on 
August 25, 2003:

I don't find any particular mention of U+2024 in my own notes from that 
meeting, so I suspect the proximal cause for the change to the 
annotation for U+2024 on October 7 will have to be dug out of an email 
archive at some point.
