      This is a common misconception. Unicode can represent many things, not
      anything. On one side, the W3C consortium has dispositions against
      attributing, in the future, single code points where combination
      characters would do, while keeping in Unicode what has already been
      lobbied by richer countries. That is, Unicode is meant to be easier to
      use for some than for others. Unicode is also set for supporting "main"
      scripts, not necessarily all of them. It means that poorer nations have
      less chance to get their script well represented in Unicode, if at all.
