    Yet I've not checked the content of kanjidic2 files in detail,
    but the introduction tells that the coverage of kanji is
    JIS X 0208 and JIS X 0212. The kJanapese{On,Kun} in Unihan.txt
    covers the kanjis that Japanese NB had never proposed to UCS.
    However, I think the coverage of kanjidic2 is sufficient to
    handle common digitized text from Japan, because the character
    encodings derived from JIS X 0208 is still dominant in Japan.

    I guess kJapanese{On,Kun} in Unihan.txt are collected from some
    Japanese dictionary (or multiple dictionaries?). So, Kanjidic2
    cannot replace all readings in Unihan.txt.

    If anybody wants to "improve" kJapanese{On,Kun} in Unihan.txt,
    the detailed use-case should be described, because there might
    be some conflicts among the solution for each use-case.
