Actually,   non Unicode text can be displayed visually as painted text
characters.  It can also be read by proprietary readers that render it
directly into visual characters without it being available in Unicode.  As I
understand it - this is currently done by people who publish ebooks - that
are text but cannot be 'seen' by screen readers.   

Those are the things we are worried about. 

The goal is to say that however you send your text - it must be available in
Unicode.
