Indeed. I don't really understand why the CDL is accepted as a
proposal, since it's clearly designed for typographic purposes, not
analytical purposes - and for that reason, Wenlin protect their data.
I have a student project just starting which aims to embrace and
extend the IDS approach into something that will produce compositional
descriptions of characters, and provide a publicly available database
of such descriptions.
I'll let this list know if and when it gets some results worth playing
