[Unicode Announcement] Public Review Issue: IVD Submission, PRI #167

The Unicode Consortium has posted a new issue for public review and
comment. Details are on the following web page:


Review periods for the new items close on June 26, 2010.

Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
Briefly, the new issue is:

PRI #167 Ideographic Variation Database Submission

The Ideographic Variation Database provides a registry for collections
of unique variation sequences containing unified ideographs, allowing
for standardized interchange according to UTS #37, Ideographic Variation
Database. A submission to the Ideographic Variation Database has been
received for: "Combined registration of the Hanyo-Densi collection and
of sequences in that collection". Details are in the background document.


Reviewers are encouraged to comment on any aspect of the submissions,
but more particularly on:

* whether the intent of a proposed collection is appropriately described
* whether the glyphic subset corresponding to a proposed sequence is
indeed a glyphic subset of the base character for the sequence
* whether the proposed sequences are congruent with the scope of their
collection, or whether a new collection may be more appropriate
