include somewhere in her query, "Hi, I'm a student writing a report
about Unicode and I have some questions..."

Of course. That is why I said "maybe it would help."

There are many pieces of information about me personally that are
considered publicly accessible, but which, if someone knocked on my door
or called me on the phone asking about them, I would naturally want to
know why they were asking.
