 You missed the point again ;-).  Well, my words were shorted, sorry for
that.  But I'm always saying that IF the character is not in unicode but
in other charsets O.K.?  I thoght it was easy to guess what I meant ;-).

 ??????????  Sorry I don't understand your logic at all??
User can still use SJIS even removing SJIS locale by filtering, 
which is YOUR WAY.  No?

 I said you can forbid PROGRAMS to handle SJIS by removing SJIS locale, O.K.?
CSI forces you nothing according to your logic.  Can you tell me more detail
