In mainliand China the full back is to use pinyin capitals without tone
marks, so ASCII. Passport have names printed in both Chinese characters
and capitalised pinyin, both are legally valid. ID cards which people
get when they turn 16 have the names in printed Chinese characters only.
So these I assume must be printed using a system that has some
characters not in UCS. Banks certainly don't have all these extra
characters so they use capitalised pinyin for any characters they can
Japan in CJK Ext F had 1,645 characters which included all characters
required for names of poeple and places. So there should be no need for
a fallback system, Unicode is enough, now
