Unlike Plane 14, SCSU is not necessarily intended for unfettered public
interchange as if it was YAUTF (yet another utf). Yes, it can be nice and
small, but it assumes that the recipient have a conformant decoder and can
reliably detect when to invoke it.

Several SCSU like private implementations exist internal to certain
applications or even networks. For these cases, implementers tend to chose
and pick a subset of the full SCSU to fit their expected needs.
