For the V.S. option there should be a provision for consistency and 
open-endedness to keep it simple.  Start with VS14 and work backwards 
for italic, fraktur, antiqua...  (whatever the preferred order works out 
to be).  Or (better yet) start at VS17 and move forward (and change the 
rule that seventeen and up is only for CJK).

Is it true that many of the CJK variants now covered were previously 
considered by the Consortium to be merely stylistic variants?
