Indeed. It would be better to always use the data found in
the 'Unicode character database' file, rather than that found
in other lists of character properties, lists that are not kept
as up-to-date nor are as keenly reviewed. And even if they
so were, might still arbitrarily, and implicitly, diverge from
Unicode's data.
