Dear Sir, 

I welcome the proposal of >64K expansion in Boring Expansion proposal as an engineer
of a Japanese font vender, but I need a quick and backward-compatible solution for my friends
working on Chinese classics and handling >64K text every day.

I propose a temporary solution that a font collection file including fonts with names like 
which shares the common base font name and each font in the collection has numbered suffix
can be treated as if there is a single font file named BaseFontName and application programs
aware of this convention can display a single BaseFontName instead of suffixed font names.

The full text of my proposal is here:
