    I reported it a month ago and got a response stating that "This has been
    forwarded to the right people, and they are looking into it".

    Right. Also, 0 <= TIndex should be 0 < TIndex.

    I prefer to have formulas rather than tables for something which can be
    computed in a simple way.

    Recently I implemented some Unicode algorithms in a way which resulted
    in static linking of the relevant code into many programs. So it was
    important to make the executable size small, which means that I had to
    invent some "compressed" representation of various tables, and to prefer

    I used Hangul_Syllable_Type table before I realized that this data can
    be computed.
