Two points. First, UNICODE is just a character set, which is a small
part of i18n. Second, yes, you can use UNICODE for l10n or i18n, but
UNICODE is harmful for m17n because of the CJK unification.
I know using UNICODE is a better solution for users of
Latin/Greek/Cyril letters than using ISO 8859. But you should know
that there also are civilizations outside Latin/Greek/Cyril.
