| TMCL has no built-in mechanism to constrain variant names (you have
| to use TMQL).

I think this as a major shortcoming of TMCL. I see that the issue that was
opened in June [1] has been closed following a decision in Seattle.

Are Naito-san and I really the only two users of non-SAE languages [2] that care
about variant names? Are they not widely used in Korea and China, for example,
as well as Japan? What about topic maps in Cyrillic, Arabic, Devanagari, etc.
