+% The newest GB 18030-2005 standard still uses some private use area
+% code points.  Any implementation which has Unicode 4.1 or newer
+% support should not use these PUA code points, and instead should
+% map these entries to their equivalent non-PUA code points. There
+% are 24 idiograms in GB 18030-2005 which have non-PUA equivalents.
+% In glibc we only support roundtrip code points, and so must choose
+% between supporting the old PUA code points, or using the newer
+% non-PUA code points. We choose to use the non-PUA code points to
+% be compatible with ICU's similar choice. In choosing the non-PUA
+% code points we can no longer convert the old PUA code points back
+% to GB-18030-2005 (technically only fixable if we added support
+% for non-roundtrip code points e.g. ICU's "fallback mapping").
+% The recommendation to use the non-PUA code points, where available,
+% is based on "CJKV Information Processing" 2nd Ed. by Dr. Ken Lunde.
