I'm not following your reasoning - what would "make the mapped
results incompatible with GB18030"? If GBK is the explicit target for
a charset conversion from Big-5, then either a character can be
mapped (fuzzy or not) or it can't. If it can't be mapped, then it's
going to show up as '?' or whatever placeholder gets used. Where does
GB18030 compatibility come into play here?

The device I'm targeting uses GBK, so unfortunately I don't have any
choice in this matter.
