So what does Richard Ishida mean by 'Q: Prof Quejingzhabu's document'?
His introduction leads me to believe it is the 蒙古文编码 by
Professor Quejingzhabu in 2000.  I checked that the relevant encodings
were the same in both TR170 and Mengguwen Bianma, and have noted where
they are different.

Are you trying to rewrite the past?  Note that my corrections are for
the Q and UVSL columns.  I wasn't proposing a change to the NP column.

So?  We know the encoding's horrible.

You've overlooked a few hundred years of history.  The encoding isn't
just for Modern Mongolian.
