Coincidentally, I've just been playing around with a "xelatex"  
package that had some rudimentary logo re-definition macros. I'll  
extend them to ensure the above problem, whatever it is, is overcome.

One of the problems with adapting babel for this purpose is that it  
uses 7-bit input to define its multilingual text, and it's not really  
a good idea (IMO) to extend xunicode to cover a whole bunch of glyphs  
simply due to compatibility reasons.

But if my current sleeping experiment works out properly, it's  
conceivable that I'll have time for such a thing. If. ;)
