Unicode: Chillu: Confusing code points as base characters

Rachana has a genuine concern that by encoding chillus we are giving them charater status. That is not true. Code points are not base characters. This is a kind of explained in Character Encoding Model.

Regarding the collation, Rachana states:
"Only when two characters or sequences differ in [collation] value (or weight) at the primary level, is there a need to differentiate them at the encoding level."
This is also not true. See this:
In a philosophical way, characters are for humans and codepoints are for computers. Collation Element Table is a way to connect these two.
