Does ISO 10646 have a defect tracking system that is publicly
visible, so that we can monitor the progress and have a bug-id
to refer to?

Beyond that, I believe the reference to "higher-level protocol"
in the proposed resolution is underspecified; I don't know what
a "higher-level protocol" is.

Beyond that, Note 3 in section 12 of ISO 10646:2020 (not Note 2 as
mentioned in the paper) suggests "0007 BELL", which is ambiguous
with U+1F514 BELL. This should use "ALERT" instead.

I hope that N5168 can be revised to fix these issues.
