Beta code still has substantial advantages in its niche market:
1) It's easier to keyboard than full Unicode;
2) It's easier to extend by agreement, and continues to handle
matters that are either not yet in Unicode or will never be in
Unicode, being appropriate for high-level protocols.
Don't count it out yet.
