    Nor does the document explain what is meant by "Extension C" - I assume that
    this means "CJK Unified Ideographs Extension C", but this may not be obvious to

    BTW, what is "CJK Unified Ideographs Extension C" intended to include ? Surely
    not any more ordinary Han ideographs - with over 70,000 ideographs already
    encoded, there can't be so many genuine ideographs that still need encoding as
    to warrant a whole new plane. However there is a real need to encode oracle bone
    characters and other ancient epigraphic forms of Han ideographs. Is this
    (hopefully) what Extension C is intended for ?
