[sw-l] challenge for programmers

IMVHO there is need of:
- standard (adding IMWA into the Unicode)
- fonts (vector fonts /TrueType/)
- input method (create system /windows,linux,.../ compatible input methods)

What is the state of standardization of IMWA and process of including
IMWA into the Unicode?
I think it is the most important step.

And what about creating of TrueType fonts for IMWA? AFAIK it is just
pictures now, which is almost unable to use in standard applications.
TrueType is vector type and it is possible to change size of the text
without lost of rendering quality.

Is there any core team to work on these issues?
