Just for clarification: Jorma Luutunen expresses here the same
support for FUPA as other recent postings did in expressions like
"first phase" or the like. So far as I have understood the inclusion
of all FUPA elements in the BMP is so important because FUPA support
makes only sense on level 3.

Level 3 means: Implemented fonts can handle the technics of
combining. It is obvious that FUPA is unusable if characters can not
be combined. Combining is vital for FUPA. _Timely_ implementation of
level 3 can be expected only for the BMP (the first plane).
