A proposal which is declined by the UTC doesn't automatically
create an obligation to write an extended dissertation explaining
the rationale and putting that rationale on record. It might be
one thing if there were a lot of controversy involved, and one
group of participants asked for a rationale to be recorded,
despite not having a consensus to move on something -- but
this one wasn't even close. Nobody in the committee felt
encoding was justified in this case.

And not every mark on paper -- not even every mark *printed*
in typeset material on paper -- is automatically an obvious
candidate for encoding with a simple, plain text character
