Dear Tjebbe van Tijen,
I believe the reason for this seemingly irregular split is to give the
code charts a nicer, more uniform appearance. Although using sets of
twelve or thirteen may not seem as uniform as sixteen, splitting up a
block as 12/11/11 (as in the CJK Unified Ideographs block you
mentioned) appears more uniform within that block than 16/16/2.
17/17 seems to be strangely out of the question, however.
