    Whilst the origninal intent of the BMP was to cover the 65k most
    useful characters. Even if it is eventually prove that 65k characters
    are all that a needed for contempory text, those 65K will not all be
    in the BMP.

    The solution is for support for all 17 unicode planes to become the
    norm, so that the BMP becomes what it should be one plane among equals.
