Yes, that's true as well. The implementer's world is full of all this
nasty reality stuff. It would be great to go back to designing
theoretical tools and theoretical Private Use Areas that didn't start
life burdened with multiple conflicting demands placed on them...
To Chris Fynn: Chris, have you tried using the PUA in OfficeXp, or are
you using an older version? I think we may have made a tweak in Word2002
that allowed you to assign any font you liked to the "Asian" EUDC ranges
in the PUA.

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".
