I would also prefer that the MIME2 document not specifically exclude "bare
10646"...especially since we don't know what IS 10646 will be yet, and
simply because this might be confusing.
Hmmm, then, instead of 10646, let's refer to
the Indian national standard ISCII-1988
from which devanagari section of DIS 10646 is derived.
It is the intended use of ISCII to make negotiation between sender and
receiver on the language used.
are the proper way to use it.
Of course, such a policy was completely ratioinal when ISCII
was designed as a 7 bit code for all Indean languages.
