Interesting. Would such a "mentor" be available throughout the development
process, or would this only be for the last push towards the review?

Not necessarily. I'm not quite sure as of yet what being our contact person
would imply (waiting for a response from HiG), so I can't say for sure, but
me asking for a contact person is basically to keep my college happy! ;) I
highly doubt we will be doing any development in collaboration with that
person specifically, but rather the entire community, so strictly speaking,
deep knowledge of Unicode shouldn't really be required. I will get back to
you on that when I know for sure though!
