    Has it escaped you that right now no Serbian keyboard driver does not do
    this? That no existing Serbian data contains this? That no existing
    fonts -- and every other existing Cyrillic or Serbian font or process in
    the world -- currently will *not* ignore VS1?

    Your "no impact" statement is, frankly, naive.
