Assamese and Unicode.

It appears that the Indian government will submit an 'Assamese' proposal.

Since everything I know about Assamese Script indicates that it is basically the same as Bengali and the Unicode Assamese controversy is derived entirely from a sub-nationalistic fit over character and script names, I expect that this proposal will not be accepted.

However, 'popular nationalism' will probably be used to attack Unicode then.
