That's not the issue here. The issue here is that such updates
_could_ be provided without requiring users to install a newer version
of the OS. IOW, the assertion that one cannot expect an OS shipped in
2001 to support scripts that didn't exist at that time is simply
false. There's no technical problem here, only a managerial decision.

How can a newer and better text shaping engine possibly confuse users?
