Dear All,

Chinese characters for Unicode first go to IRG (or ISO/IEC 
JTC1/SC2/WG2/IRG) website. The limit of 500 a year for China is an 
average based on IRG #48 document regarding working set 2017 
which explicitly states "each submission shall not exceed 1,000 
characters". The People's Republic of China as one member of IRG is 
limited to 1,000 characters, which hopefully we can all agree has a 
population of over 1,000,000,000 , therefore was limited to submitting 
at most 1,000 characters. The earliest possible date for the next 
working set is two or three years later, that is 2019 or 2020, so that's 
an average limit of either 500 or 333 characters a year.
