Perhaps I may notice the reason why this misunderstanding happen.
Let me make japanese situation clear. Unlike Hangul, an implementation
which can handle only Hiragana/Katakana is almost completely useless
in Japan. We need to use Kanji as well as Hiragana/Katakana, thus,
including those in kernel source is never option.
