    Yes. In the case of kIRGHanyuDaZidian vs. kHanYu: the kHanYu data was
    very carefully checked against a specific edition of the print
    source, as is described in the documentation

    And besides correcting errors, kHanYu is more complete than
    kIRGHanyuDaZidian, because kHanYu records source-internal
    unifications, which kIRGHanyuDaZidian completely glosses over.
