    Unicode intends to be a complete standard for encoding text, including
    a huge array of characters including the interrobang, obscure phonetic
    characters, characters for obsolete orthographies for small languages,
    and Chinese characters found only in dictionaries. A character does
    not need to be a common part of Myanmar text to be worth encoding.
    None of this affects Kent Karlsson's argument that they've already
    been encoded, of course.
