Thanks for the references and suggestion.
However, the criterion by which the character sets and encodings implemented
by GNU libiconv are selected is listed in the NOTES file:
which are in wide-spread use in at least one territory
of the world.
and this criterion does not apply to any of the character sets you mentioned.
So, these characters sets won't be added to GNU libiconv.
