    I don't know, how about
    --invalidation of all existing data that uses this old Zhuang orthography,
    --no obvious benefit to the user community (not that there is a big
    user community since the orthography has now been superseded),
    --no request for disunification from the representatives of the user
    community (i.e. China).

    At any rate, if you want to take this further you will need to read
    Annex F "Formal criteria for disunification" of the Principles and
    Procedures document


    and assess the costs and benefits of disunification in this case.
