    Totally agree.

    You mean, you would expect it to be called SZZ = "shu zhe zuo"
    (vertical then bending to the left) rather than SWZ = "shu wan zuo"
    (vertical then curving to the left) ? I guess that as SZZ is already
    taken by U+31DE to mean "shu zhe zhe" (vertical then bending then
    bending again) they had to come up with some other acronym, hence the
    slightly incorrect SWZ.
