>> iso10646-1 (Registry=iso10646, Encoding=1; why 1?; that's the BMP)

CJF> Shouldn't that have been iso10646-0? The BMP is plane 0 not plane 1.

Exactly my reaction when I heard about the registration. Too late to
change it now, though.

However, as encoding names are arbitrary Latin-1 strings, not numbers,
when the need comes for additional planes in XLFDs, we can always
define things such as `iso10646-01', or `iso10646-p1'.
