I did not mean to imply otherwise. I was careful to state that I listed only
*some* of the character sets with which Unicode maintains 1-1
However, I did fail to mention that some of the characters in
Latin Extended Additional are also for 1-1 transcodability.
That was an error.
So: 1-1 transcodability with various character sets is a factor
for both Latin Extended B and Latin Extended Additional.
