Each charset has different reason.

IPA: Some characters are not in Unicode.
Korean: It contains Chinese characters too.  But, by
        default, it is unified with Unicode.
                (unify-charset 'korean-ksc5601 nil 'deunify)
        will cancel the unification.
Vietnames: Simply because not yet worked on.
Indian: Glyph characters (i.e. what appear only in
        composition) are not in Unicode:
Arabic: Simply because not yet worked on.

By the way, as I must prepare my presentation at GNU/Linux
conference held in Japan next week, I won't be able to work
on Emacs this week.  I'll keep on reading mails, but please
don't expect a prompt response.
