Italics get used to express important semantic meaning, so unicode should support them

An invention of mine, a container for which needs encoding into Unicode 
in order to achieve successful unambiguous interoperability, has been 
banned from being discussed in this mailing list and blocked from going 
before The Unicode Technical Committee because it has been deemed 
without explanation to be "out of scope".

Yet scope can change according to need, yet discussion of scope also has 
been blocked from being discussed in the mailing list.

My posts have been placed on permanent moderated posts status so as to 
stop such discussion taking place.

So, at present, the bar is far too high for me to be able to achieve my 
goal of successful unambiguous interoperability for the invention.

Unless discussion and fair consideration by The Unicode Technical 
Committee is allowed then that success will be impossible and a 
futuristic invention will never achieve its full potential.

Encoding into Unicode would also guarantee that the technique is applied 
in a non-proprietary manner.
