Actually, there are *no* script codes in 10646, nor does 10646 define
the notion or term "script". 10646 specifies a collection identification
system which permits identifying a subset of characters in 10646. Some
predefined collection identifiers are specified which refer to particular
ranges of character codes. These may certainly be used for applications
wishing to identify subsets of characters in the standard.
