The code set conversion rule specified in JIS X 0221 (JIS version of
ISO/IEC 10646-1) is different from the one distributed by Unicode
Consortium.  Microsoft Windows uses yet another conversion rule (which
is based on the rule previously distributed by Unicode Consortium).
So we already have three different conversion rules publicly available.
There will be more rules for private purposes.  Sigh.
