It was obsolete at the time of publication. RFC 1815 was a rant by
someone who thought that:

(a) Unicode was fatally broken for representing Japanese because of Han
unification, unlike ISO-2022-JP which by definition was used only for
Japanese; and

(b) display is everything, and all characters not represented by a glyph
in a Windows NT 3.51 font from 1995 ought to be excluded from

Sounds to me a lot like the present campaign.
