Can you provide some detail about these research works that have to do
with encoding characters and are projected to require more than the
137,468 code points available in the PUA? What sort of "INTERFERENCE
from Unicode" needs to be avoided, and are we talking about encoding or
architectural decisions or what? (There must be a GREAT DEAL of
perceived interference here, because of the capital letters.)
