For Public Comment on the Kannada and Telugu LGR Proposals
In reviewing the Sinhala LGR proposal, the IP noted that the Sinhala GP
considers the Kannada and Telugu letters distinct enough so as to not
contain any candidates for cross-script variants.
The IP notes that the Kannada and Telugu LGR proposals contain a
proposed cross-script relation for the letter RA as well as some
dependent letters between the respective scripts and Sinhala. The IP is
a bit skeptical as to whether the letter RA / RAYANNA case rises to the
level of a variant and would like to encourage the NeoB GP to review the
In doing so, the GP is encouraged to engage in dialog with the Sinhala
GP and to come to a mutual understanding.
If the review by the GP concludes that the Kannada/Telugu RA and Sinhala
RAYANNA are distinct after all, the fix would be to remove that variant
(as well as all variants for dependent characters). If the review comes
to the opposite conclusion, the IP would expect some added discussion in
the LGR proposal text that better documents why it is important that
this particular variant should be included.
