I  don't  think  so.   Unicode  will  never  be  able  to  handle  the
"Difference among  chinese characters in GB, JIS,  KSC, BIG5:" section
in  the  etc/HELLO  file.   Unicode simply  unifies  the  "equivalent"
characters that show up differently  in that section of the HELLO file
into single code points.
