Then it is a sad choice of the name of a character set being used for
other purposes. Many users will say: didn't I make a big effort years
ago to totally convert my environment? Why do I still have traces of
big5 hanging around?

Perhaps there should be a more neutral name used. Since it seems what
you are calling Chinese-Big5 does not have much to do with
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_Chinese#Computer_encoding
after all.
