Assamese and Unicode.

The Eastern Nagari script is used to write Bengali and Assamese, as
well as a few other languages.  To the best of my knowledge, the
existing Unicode encoding includes coverage for the minor typographic
differences between Bengali and Assamese text.

Any proposal for separate Assamese code points should be judged on its
merits, and it's a "non-starter".

'Popular nationalism' might be best served by returning to separate
code pages.  For me, that's also a "non-starter".

Best regards,
