That is a libel. The draft Unicode 5.0 code chart for Bengali now says
don't use U+09E4 and U+09E5, but use 'generic Indic' U+0964 and U+0965
http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.0.0/charts/CodeCharts-5.0.0d1.pdf . It's a
big download (9.3 MB). It's not a big change, but it addresses the keyboard
issue as much as Unicode can.

That was the starting point.

I haven't studied the history of the Myanmar encoding. As to the Khmer
encoding, the marks are not plain vertical lines, and are little different
to the Thai forms.

What is your objection to the unification? Is it recorded in the opening
discussion document, http://www.unicode.org/review/pr-59.html ? Is it the
keyboard issue? I had been hoping it was easy to use MKLC, though I have
read that there are some problems with it.
