You are (inadvertently) conflating my question with earlier discussions.
My question was asked solely in the context of Apostolos's suggestion that :

and I was trying to ascertain how best this explanation might be cast.
If it is the case (that for UNIV) all agree that Unicode is wrong and
Apostolos is correct, then a simple explanation that 'Unicode is wrong'
would be all that is needed. But if (say) 50% of UNIV agree that Unicode
is correct, then the explanation would have to be cast bearing this in mind.
