	This has been brought up before. The control fields should not
 contain charsets that can't yet be handled by the packaging tools;
 policy should follow, not lead, the tools and design, for the most
 part. Policy  is not the place to try out design; it is supposed to
 document mature practices, and information about practices required
 for package integration.
