I am again baffled here. If "any national group" is group 1, then
my U.S. keyboard layout, a German keyboard layout on a U.S. keyboard, a
German layout on a German keyboard , and Michael's Irish Unicode setup, are
all group 1? Certainly I misunderstand this. More pedantry, /si vous

These definitions, as well as the definitions of "level" and
"group", don't seem to make particular distinction between the two. Does
any hard distinction exist?
