That, or one representative decided that all Indian languages are same
and can have the same ordering. The latter is more likely.
The Tamil unicode encoding table is a pain to see. Anyone with
elementary knowledge of Tamil will reject it outright.
1. See the blanks after க ச ட த ப. For other Indian languages 3 more
slots were allocated, so tamil gets the blanks.
2. ன comes after ந before ப. as in Hindi. In tamil ன is the last letter.
An expert can go on with more points.
There are 57 blanks in the range. One can only wonder at the wisdom of
great unifers :-(
