Dear James,

I completely agree with that.  I only created the font for the purpose
of this proposal, and I would not encourage anyone to actually use the
character in question before it is officially approved, but I had
assumed that it would be good to already place it in the proposed place
to demonstrate that it works, and I had thought that putting it on my
website would be the easiest way to make it available to the editors.
Do you think I should relocate the letter to the Private Use Area in
this font?

Thanks a lot,
