    Is your dislike shared by Mongolian encoding specialists, or the other
    users of variation selectors you hint at?

    Is there a significant body of happy users of Mongolian encodings that
    use free variation selectors - Unicode or otherwise? (I gather from the
    Unicode Standard that legacy encodings of Mongolian also have mechanisms
    similar to Unicode's free variation selectors.)
