In pre-unicode Emacs, make-char returned generic characters
in the above calls.  But, as a concept of generic character
is deleted in Emacs 23, the above setting anyway doesn't
work now.

Note that U+203E is the only non_ASCII character in

I didn't know about that one (is it intended to be a combining macron?), but isn't ¥ also in latin-jisx0201 (at code point 92)?

But, why do we have that kind of setting in term/w32-win.el
only for Japanese?

Because only Japanese uses SJIS on Windows.

What does the registry "JISX0208-SJIS" exactly mean?

A JISX0208 font that is available in SJIS encoding. Is there a more standard way of writing that?

  Why doesn't the default setting work?

It seems it does now. I have removed those lines from w32-win.el.
