Good catch. I agree that we should try to be consistent. And in case
there is a good reason that requires us to be "inconsistent" we at least
have to argue and comment why we handle those seemingly equivalent cases

As mentioned last week, I will be in a car driving to a customer during
our call and I don't like driving and using the phone (even with a
hands-free kit) at the same time. So I won't be able to join. Therefore
my vote (in case you need it in this call) for this case:
Looking at our original documents my opinion is to not considering base
characters and characters with cedilla below as variants.

Talk to you next week,
