    I can't understand how Arabic suddenly appears in your list. The
    complexities are in the script itself, and not in Unicode. I have yet to
    see any sound standard for Arabic information interchange that doesn't use
    the same model Unicode uses for Arabic. ISO 8859-6 does, CP1256 does, and
    ISIRI 3342 does. Even the weird UZT standard almost uses the same model.

    If only you wanted some complex script, use something more complex next
    time. Mongolian, for example...
