      I sincerely hope the proposed character set won't become a second case
    of Hangul precomposed syllables albeit in a scale about 10 times smaller.
    It'd be interesting to see how South Korea will vote on this. It may
    not be easy to vote against it because of its past 'sin'.

     Is there any opentype/AAT font for Tibetan? Do Uniscribe, Pango,
    ATSUI, and Graphite support them if there are opentype Tibetan fonts?
    In addition to the principle of character encoding, the best practical
    counterargument would come from a demonstration that Unicode encoding
    model for Tibetan script does work in practice.
