Thank you for the pleasant reply. Actually, all feedback
from Japan has been pleasant; the same cannot be said
for all of the emails we have received from Americans.
Apparently this issue is far more politically important
than I had realized. And of course Unicode does have
32 bit proposals already; it is as you say the problems
of mapping that are so complex. We have heard from
BTRON(?) with the same comments.
