I think XeTeX actually works quite well with hangul if the appropriate
features are turned on, and it sounds like their not being so was a bug
that's easy to fix.  It was already easy to work around.  The
glyph-pointer bug in ICU is rather more serious, but that is a general bug
in all contextual substitutions that happens to affect hangul; it's not
anything to do with hangul in particular and affects all other uses of
contextual substitutions too (an example involving Greek was discussed on
this list).
