Very well, "require or depend on" makes sense.

No, I'm not satisfied by the rationale for not defining "character" once
and for all. charmod defines code-point, and a character is exactly
that which a code point encodes. charmod uses it this way:
"Each character in the repertoire is then associated ..."
I don't see sufficient reason for not exporting that concept.

I hope you'll reconsider. (I'll understand if you choose
to proceed over my objection, of course.)
