    Sound eminently sensible and Unicode-like to use Tibetan symbols for Mongolian
    where appropriate. Is the following what you're suggesting ?

    1st variant form = U+0F04
    3rd variant form = U+0F04, U+0F05
    4th variant form = U+0F04, U+0F05, U+0F05

    Is it possible to change the standard glyph for a character once it has been
    carved in stone on the Unicode code charts ? And if it were possible, then how
    would the horizontal form be represented ? There is no exactly corresponding
    form in the Tibetan block.
