I certainly concur with the points you've raised, to put it mildly. Over
the years I've ended up with the perspective that a campaign on the scale
of something like Polio erradication is what it is needed to make the
world wide transition to unicode. Ultimately it happens one computer at
a time, and one office at a time. Perhaps the software antivirus model
can be applied to help in the migration away from the pre-Unicode
enodoings. Imagine an antivirus update that found non-Unicode fonts
on your system and remapped them, then found documents using the fonts
and reencoded them. Hazardous sure, but backups could be made, etc.
there really is no easy way its going to happen...
