>If the Slovak government were to decree that this "character"
"H" and "I" in their dictionaries was in future to be
represented by some
unitary glyph would it then somehow become an acceptable
- or would it still have to be encoded by the sequence U+0043
this would only be a glyph change.
If it is accepted that CH is a character in the Slovak and
it seems to me the real reason for not encoding a CZECH-SLOVAK
LETTER CH is for backwards compatibility with legacy systems or
problems that would be caused by people using it as a ligature
for CH in other languages
You've stated two reasons why it would not be good to introduce
a new encoding at that point: it's only a glyph change, and
you'd lose compatibility with legacy-encoded data.
