    They obviously are authorities when they define the charsets Emacs
    wants to implement, at least.  As far as I know, Unicode is the single
    authority on the world's character usage, as far as it goes.

We are running into an ambiguity in the term "authority".  When you
first spoke about this, your words appeared to use the meaning "He Who
Must Be Obeyed".  Therefore I restated that GNU does not regard
standards as authorities in that sense.

Now, however, it seems you're using the word to mean "expert".  I
agree Unicode is an expert, and what it says is worth paying attention
