    No, except that:

    1. Some people think it's a bad ideа to display characters from
    different scripts side-by-side, because of the spoofing problem.

    2. Not all browsers have been updated to whatever the latest version
    is -- a situation that would be at least ten times worse if the entire
    underlying structure of the Internet were changed as Meeku suggests.
