This is the part that has always confused me. At what point does text
encoded in a vendor's private-use extension to Shift-JIS become
"Shift-JIS encoded text"? Because I know for sure that I'm not supposed
to refer to characters assigned to the Unicode PUA, my own or anyone
else's, as being "encoded in Unicode."
