Based on <https://www.kantei.go.jp/jp/tyoukanpress/201904/1_a.html>and
the encoding appears to be correct.
In addition to the code of <U4EE4>, note that the code of <UF9A8> is
also present in <REI>. The latter is a CJK compatibility ideograph
unicode character and is not usually used.
Sorry, I don't understand. Do you mean that the era name could be
written with <UF9A8> instead of <U4EE4> as the first codepoint? How
certain are we that <U4EE4> is indeed the official codepoint?
I believe it could be written as <UF9A8>, but that is not a Kanji
character which we can display in shift-jis / euc-jp, while <U4EE4>
is a code point we have mapped to a specific encoding value.
All uses of REI are <U4EE4> on the government site, which is as strong
indicator that this is what we should be using.
Lastly, this CLDR ticket for 35.1:
And these revisions of trunk:
--- common/uca/FractionalUCA.txt (revision 14975)
+++ common/uca/FractionalUCA.txt (revision 14978)
-[UCA version = 12.0.0]
+[UCA version = 12.1.0]
+32FF; [U+4EE4, 31][U+548C, 31] # Zyyy So [FB40.0020.001C][CEE4.0000.0000][FB40.0020.001C][D48C.0000.0000] * SQUARE ERA NAME REIWA
Indicate <U4EE4> is what will be used for CLDR and we should match.
