I don't know about the points you raise, but I wish it was easier to help
proofread Unihan data. Back in 2012 I compared kKangXi to kIRGKangXI and
found 252 conflicts, besides the cases where a character only has one or
the other. I even put together a simple tool to help fixing this, with
links to the relevant pages at the online Kang Xi. I had no replies…
 http://namakajiri.net/misc/unihan_kangxi/compare_existing.html for
characters in Kang Xi, and for the others,
