In the case of CJK-related scripts research where there isn't a standard encoding model yet, the common practice is to use PUA, which entails installing a bunch of fonts and proprietary IMEs.  So, comparatively, installing a WebExtension is both easier (no admin rights needed) and safer (code is sandboxed; sites which the extension can access are declared upfront in the manifest), and would be the least problem for researchers.
