IMHO the CASS radical set would be the one to use for this. It has the
support of a major national body and is used in several dictionaries,
including Xiandai Hanyu Cidian and John DeFrancis' ABC Dictionary.
I expect too that generating a CASS radical index could be done
automatically using the kRSKangXi field in Unihan and the mapping
table between CASS and KangXi radical numbers in DeFrancis - kRSCASS
would make sense.
Are all of the CASS radicals themselves encoded in Unicode?
