Because I thought XML (and Unicode) were in the business of enabling,
not constraining. Lack of support for anything but Western Europe
is an unfortunate misfeature to be worked around. Perhaps the
routines that will later read from the database (not in XML, I assume)
can be taught to understand HCRs.
