Some people say the contrary. In a zero-sum game you can't have everything.
Anyway Latin 1 is still there. The new table is to fill a gap between
private codes and UNICODE for those using the EURO and integral French and
Finnish and for those needing this in plain ISO/IEC 8859-
structure-conformant applications. These requirements are urgent.

People do not have to worry too much about their habits if they want to
keep them. But they should not be intolerant against other users'
requirements. So far this has been avoided, it should stay that way. I feel
that it could degenerate.
