Anybody willing to share his knowledge on this topic?

Looking for something else I found


Proposal to Use Standardized Variation Sequences to Encode Church
Slavonic Glyph Variants in Unicode

I don't remember the proposal being discussed on the list and I was
unable to find any trace of a discussion in the list archives. Is my memory

I found also

Expert Feedback on Cyrillic proposals...

containing interesting comments on VS by David Birnbaum.

I understand L2/13‐153 and L2/13-153 has been rejected, but I would be
happy to have more information about it.

Best regards
