    If listing CJK radicals, don't forget the Kangxi Radicals
    block: 2F00..2FDF.

    And John Knightley followed up:

    In late-breaking news, the IRG's C1 list of additional unified
    CJK ideographs was accepted for ballotting last week by WG2.
    They will appear at the range: U+2A700..U+2B77A (4219 total),
    in a new block called "CJK Unified Ideographs Extension C".
    That will be part of the Amendment *4* to ISO/IEC 10646:2003,
    which is currently scheduled to start its PDAM ballotting
    on December 15, 2006.

    Assuming that the ballotting on Amendment 4 progresses without
    hitches, that new collection of unified CJK ideographs will
    also eventually be approved for addition to the Unicode Standard
    in some future version, resynchronized with that amendment to 10646.
