Ay ya! I've /written/ software like this. You know? Given a character with a
name like "LEFT BRACKET", search the list for the character (if there is one)
with a name like "RIGHT BRACKET". And there are times when I actually do want a
getMatchingBracket(char) type function! :-) [Implementation note - at
run-time, this is just a table-lookup. What I just described relates only to
/building/ the table].
Still - this is work-around-able. I can cope with a small handful of spelling
mistakes. I certainly don't think it's anything worth getting upset about.

Actually, there is a secret purpose for this: it's to break software that
analyzes character names to figure out the meaning of a character, or to find
pairs by replacing "RIGHT" by "LEFT". (cf U+FE17 PRESENTATION FORM FOR VERTICAL
LEFT WHITE LENTICULAR BRACKET).
