I think that all scripts except Latin and Cyrillic are out of scope of
this project.  Note that vocal scores of many classical operas have
been re-published in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea, using both a new music
typesetting and a CJK translation for the lyrics, but finding a
fitting CJK font is much easier since you don't have to take care of
the traditional font layout used hundred years ago.
