There are already script codes in 10646, to identify eg
the Hangul script, the CJK script, and the Cyrillic script.

This may not be what you want, I believe you want to differentiate
between eg Japanese and Chinese version of the same collection of
CJK characters.

So some suggestions:

1. do not call them script codes.

2. you may look at the way UCS does this and make a similar way
of doing what you want, and this may have a better chance to pass
as there is already precedence for doing things that way.

The text of the 10646 standard is available at
(a ms word file about 1 mb).
