    I wonder if you could elaborate. We hear that CJK users typically use well under 10K characters, and for years there have been implementations using character sets that didn't include any of the Plane 2 characters and that, evidently, were adequate for lots of usage. So, it's not obvious that Plane 2 characters would be needed in all application scenarios. (Of course, Tim hasn't really said much about his application scenario.) I do note that the II Core set includes 22 Plane 2 characters; are these the characters you had in mind? In what scenarios is it important to support them?
