    That's what I tried to express here. Additional things, like degree of
    usage, stability etc. need to be looked at when it comes to a *standard*
    character set where there's an expectation that many people will
    implement/support it, but what I mentioned are essential aspects of
    whether character set encoding is an appropriate technology to address this.
