Comment:

 

In some character encodings like UTF-8, scripts with a similar number of
characters (e.g. latin versus indic scripts) vary in space requirements.
To avoid high bandwidth / cost related to scripts, you might propose for
such cases the use of the 

compression scheme for unicode [http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr6/]

.

Working Group Resolution:
We have not found sufficient support for this encoding scheme in mobile
devices.
