How about this, then, Tex:

One of the projects that the IRG undertook is to identify the core set
of ideographs which *must* be supported on a platform in order to
satisfy modern needs. This set of 9810 ideographs includes 62 from
the SIP.

Basically, this set represents what the best experts in the world on
the subject of ideographic repertoires on computers have to say. They
say that these 62 must be supported to minimally meet modern needs.

This obviates the need to do any research to justify the characters in
question; people better qualified than we are have already done that.
