    That's highly commandable, and I was tempted to do the same, but is
    there really a point? After all these are block names, and we know how
    inadequate they are per se. I mean, U+0023 is not real a part of basic
    latin script, rather a currency unit. etc. IMO, MSWord should follow the
    same approach as MSCharMap.
