I noticed that Mr. Murata is slated for a presentation at IBM's technology conference coming up shortly. That means he's pretty busy. I'm trying to chase down information on the characters that are going to be hardest hit be the present issues, but it takes time. I don't have all the specs sitting at my desktop, and the closest place to find them is the public library. Speaking of the library, with some urging from my wife, I ended up making some time and going last Saturday. (Then I was there a lot longer than she wanted me to be. :) I wasn't able to get the whole bag of evidence, but it looks like some of the characters that got code-point shifted by the extensions to UNICODE are in fairly common use. Maybe I can get to the library again this weekend. More later.
