Subject: Impact of Unicode

Having read the Unicode standard, it seems that it only impacts 'Text'
Is this a correct assessment?

In particular the size and use of the following DATA TYPES does NOT have
to change on ANY platform:

 1) Integer
 2) Float
 3) Date and/or Time
 4) Boolean
 5) Currency or Money
 6) Audio, Video or graphics (bit strings)
 7) ..
