That's not entirely true. There are lots of other reasons for unifying. In
fact, the "unification" game is still going on because as we add more and
more CJKV characters the standard becomes more unwieldy for real users.
People are now talking about "basic international CJK subsets" and working
on systems of identificationf or variants, etc, etc. It is VERY clear to
pretty much anyone working in this area that we have one Han script.
And... There *is* a proposal for a unified ancient Brahmi that encompasses
several things (non-modern) that also could be encoded on their own. This
isn't mature yet.
