Martin, sorry for my slow reply.  

KS_C_5601-1987 is indeed used for CP 949 as a whole set.  
Microsoft doesn't has interest in using CP949 or euc-kr
as the charset aliases to mark those documents/files that 
contain 11,172 characters.

I totally understand that's not what many people agree,
but I am just letting you know that's how it's been done
for Windows platforms/products.
