Long ago, I discussed with Thai/Lao people about how to support their
languages in Mule.  At that time, as I can't speak those languages, we
refer each character by name in the discussion.  And, for debugging the
support code, name property was very useful.  That's the reason for
those properties.   Now, I think we can get rid them.
