    CJK normalization at least does not cause so many problems, as ideographs
    are not encoded by combining sequences, but individually (except for some
    private ideographs that may be encoded with ideographic description
    characters, and basic radicals or strokes, but they all are base character
    at class 0 and are not affected by normalization).

    So the only discussions in CJK are mostly related to unification of
    repertoires from various sources (national standard organisms, research
    groups and universitaries, librarians, dictionnaries and their

    This focuses much less a large population, but it is certainly a problem
    when CJK can be augmented ad infinitum without policies by any one using the
