CJK characters invented for writing personal names are extremely rare,
and do not constitute a significant fraction of CJK ideographs
proposed for encoding. The majority of unencoded modern-use characters
in China (that are not systematic simplified forms of existing encoded
characters) are used in place names or in Chinese dialects or for
writing non-Chinese languages such as Zhuang.
