    We've asked. But you need to understand that publishers
    have their own rules and constraints. Paper is bought in
    huge quantities by publishers, and special purpose papers
    (such as lightweight, thin, high-opacity papers used in
    dictionaries) are expensive and carefully planned for.

    As important as we all think the Unicode Standard is, its
    press run is still rather small compared to those for
    Bibles and dictionaries!
