    CJK-C may not have been discussed much on public lists such as this
    one (where most of the important and controversial encoding issues
    pass by unnoticed), but there has been plenty of detailed discussion
    and analysis going on in the background, and several subscribers to
    this list have spent many hours researching the lineage of individual
    proposed CJK-C characters. My recollection is that there was
    considerably more discussion of CJK-C than Capital ß at the recent WG2
    meeting, and the fact that CJK-C was pushed back to Amd.5 is a
    reflection of the comment that it has excited.
