Could someone possibly say please why the teletext graphics characters have still not been encoded as the change requested to their proposed encoding by the Unicode Technical Committee had been made and a revised document submitted before at least two of the previous meetings of the Unicode Technical Committee took place?

Do the teletext graphics characters need to be resubmitted in a proposal document on their own for them to become encoded?

As teletext is a great United Kingdom invention, does it need the United Kingdom National Body to propose their inclusion directly to the International Standards Organization?
