    Why? We have 11 complete planes free. Let's be really generous and
    give two more to CJKV and Zhuang etc., two to Old Hanzi, one to
    Egyptian hieroglyphs, and a couple to Mesoamerican writing systems.
    Then we've still got four planes (quarter of a million characters)
    left for Atlantean and Martian.
