My main concern are missing glyphs. A very interesting project is the IRIZ
ZenBase CD (a collection of CJK Buddhist texts) using the already
mentioned Chinese Encoding Freamework. In spite of the fact that the team
uses Unicode and all CNS planes simultaneously, they have already had to
add about 1000 glyphs (if I remember correctly) to a private charset which
are missing (from a linguistical point of view) in Unicode and CNS...
