At the risk of straying off-topic:

I din't know what Unicode 3.0 says about Armenian, but the language
has a one to one mapping between upper and lower case.

I'm surprised that the German ß is treated as a character rather than
a ligature used in typesetting.  Does a German type "ss" or do they
have a special "ß" key?  When school children recite the German 
alphabet do they include "ß".  My point is, should "ß" be modeled as a 
character in language text or just as a typsetting convention to be
employed in printed output?
