In the light of the discussion about misleading Unicode names for Tamil
etc, and the insistence of some that this is not a problem because these
names are not supposed to be informative, is what MSKLC does an abuse of
the Unicode name list? After all, Sinnathurai has a legitimate reason to
complain if the incorrect name is presented at a user interface. And it
is not only MSKLC which presents such names to the user, MS Word also
does this in its Insert Symbol dialog.
