"For exceptions problem, Unicode doesn't have additional problems against
CJK national standards, because of "round-trip conversion compatibility"
(or "source separation") principle of Unicode. This principle is that
variants which are separated and have different codepoints in a CJK
local standard will also be separated and have different codepoints in

I'm not understanding the problem.  As I understand it, any failure to
round-trip completely is a bug.  If both translator and user are in
EUC-JP, they should get the same thing.  (If one or the other is in
UTF-8, the text is being converted anyway, so this doesn't matter.)
