I'm afraid I must disagree with you! If you'll look more closely at the
image included in the article, you'll find that the hanzi in Ms. Ma's
name uses the simplified form of the horse radical (马) rather than the
traditional form (馬).
The character in Ms. Ma's name is NOT currently included in Unicode! In
fact, it is not present in Extension C (which JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2 has
already appended to ISO 10646), nor is it present in the most recent
review versions of CJK_D or CJK_URGENT (as seen on the IRG's document
With a character like this not supported by Unicode (and thus, not by
GB 18030), it's easy to see why it would raise a fuss.
Now the real question is: does this give the character enough usage to
be added to Unicode?
(As a side note, I would like to point out that Unicode.org's
radical-stroke lookup will not return anything with the radical 马 for
no readily apparent reason.)
