    But do you really mean that? That is, do you mean Unicode characters
    except Han characters and Hangul syllables? Why would this be a
    relevant subset? If it is, I don't think there is any shorter expression
    you could use.

    Besides, the formulation is vague. UnicodeData.txt defines _some_
    properties of characters, to a varying degree, but it does not
    define all the properties. It can even be argued that the file defines
    properties for Han characters and Hangul syllables, though in a notation
    different than the rest.
