I understand the difference now. Anyway I didnʼt consider the issue as settled.

More, the Mende Kikakui number encoding default as pointed in the original thread 
would IMHO have been far, far less likely to occur if the first public review would 
be scheduled at a more useful stage than the beta one. I donʼt know if people feel 
being taken seriously when their feedback is solicited while almost all striking 
parameters are yet immutable. And I guess that some of those who are ready to spend 
a part of their time for Unicodeʼs and character encodingʼs sake, wouldnʼt necessarily 
do so unless they are solicited and given the material in a handsome format.

Perhaps would a Public Alpha Review prevent things from running worse? Beta will be 
reviewed again of course, but in a less frustrating manner.
