    The distinction between "vendor-defined" and "(end-)user defined" in
    practice isn't taken that seriously, e.g., the various editions of the
    HKSCS extension to the legacy Big5 character set are implemented by
    placing characters in both Big5's vendor-defined and (end-)user defined
    regions, in effect shrinking the space available for "end-users".
