This is true, but it is hard to see how it could be otherwise, or indeed
why this is bad in the general case. For example, U+0041 (LATIN CAPITAL
LETTER A) and U+0410 (CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER A) have the same glyph,
but different encodings.
I'm confused though, by the suggestion that a "sensible subset" of
Unicode excludes Cyrillic and Greek. Perhaps you meant something else?
