    Thank you for the new FAQ concerning why a compositional
    model for CJK encoding is unwelcome.

    "Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done
    and why. Then do it." (Robert Heinlein)

    Although the pitfalls are well-known, solutions exist.

    Meanwhile, what is the official position concerning ideographic
    description sequences (and possible glyph generation from same)
    for representing unlikely-to-ever-be-encoded personal ideographs
    in plain text?

    Best regards,

    James Kass
