The Jyutping Phrase Box is only one of ten sources for Cantonese
readings in Unicode 5.1.0. All-in-all, out of over 20,000 characters
with Cantonese readings, fewer than half-a-dozen had readings derived
solely from the Jyutping Phrase Box. Removing the Jyutping Phrase Box
as a source made virtually no change to the actual contents of the

There are nine equally good substitutes :-). So far as I know, the
Jyutping Phrase Box remains available, but to be honest, it doesn't
have as many readings or as many characters with readings as does
Unicode, even without the JPB as a source.
