Complaints is really too strong a word. A few weeks ago Tex posted a
request for "benefits" for a list he compiled, at which point someone
asked about the downsides of Unicode. This prompted a bit of discussion,
which I later went on to stir back up earlier this week.
A broad summary of the CJK issues that I gathered:
--Criticisms related to Han unification issues/problems
--Difficulty adding new characters
--Limited number of code points
--Encoding is not based on radicals and rendered on the fly.
Several listers very generously commented on these and other issues, for
which I am grateful.
