    By defintion an IDS must be complete, for example IDC+CJKV is
    imcomplete and therefore not an IDS, only IDC+CJKV+CJKV (or
    IDC+CJKV+CJKV+CJKV, if the IDC is U+2ff2/3) are complete, the begining
    and end of a IDS is clear and unambiguous, in many a cluster.

    BTW If one uses IDC with something other than cjkv the result is not an IDS
