I'm not sure about "workaround" but it'll only ever be a heuristic.

Within the constraints of the non-unicode Emacs, it seems to be The Right
Way in that it's a heuristic that fixes all the places where we've already
had to introduce a fix, and I can't think of a place where it's going to
break something.  I.e. it's a much better heuristic than the one we
currently have.  Also it allows us to remove the heuristic code (in quail
and self-insert-command, and soon in isearch) we've added at various other
places, so it cleans up the code a bit.  Since that code is not necessary in
Emacs-unicode, it ends up bringing the two closer which I think is a good
thing as well.  I.e. it just feels Right.
