This is a character under ballot for Amendment 1 to the 5th edition. It 
isn't part of the repertoire planned for publication as part of Unicode 
10.0 in June.

So if you want to have any impact on the subhead used in the charts for 
A7AF, the correct mechanism now is to get a national body comment added 
in their vote on Amendment 1.

Either that, or just put in tickler in your calendar for February, 
201*8*, when the beta review for Unicode *11* will be starting, so you 
can then make a suggestion as part of the Unicode beta review period.

Otherwise, these suggestions are just going to end up lost under the 
pile of the subsequent 13 months worth of email on unrelated topics. ;-)
