Can you provide an example? If there are limitations in specific layout, rendering or font
technologies that prevent correct representation of Unicode sequences, these should be
addressed in those technologies, as they have been and continue to be. Encoding decisions
should not be based on specific technologies, especially when those technologies are in
development and can be expected to improve.
