    Given that it was said that ScriptExtensions contains specific script
    info for characters "that are used in only a few scripts", and the
    above list does not seem "a few" (and what does that mean anyway) and
    given that the list also seems likely to be larger rather than
    smaller, I wonder if these deserve mention in the ScriptExtensions
    file at all.
