If it is true that the Unihan database has Cangjie v.3 input codes for
only 29,148 characters, whereas Malaysia’s Friends of Cangjie have
Cangjie v.5 codes for all CJK[V] unified ideographs of Unicode 4.0, why
not add a “kCangjie5” field based on the more exhaustive data from
Malaysia to the Unihan database (or, entirely replace the Cangjie v.3
data of the “kCangjie” field with the Cangjie v.5 data)?
BTW, Malaysia’s Friends of Cangjie seem to be willing to have their data
published: e.g., the English Wiktionary has the page
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Chinese_Cangjie_index where it
says: “Cāngjié data was taken from www.chinesecj.com with permission.”
