I would guess the latter. There's no tremendous rush; there should be
time to do a proper analysis of target platforms, evaluate which
proposed characters should be unified with existing or other proposed
characters, and so forth.

Of course there's no guarantee this will be the last request ever for
8-bit computer compatibility characters, but there doesn't seem much
point in intentionally dragging the process out, platform by platform.
