I am sorry that I was not to the point here.

I meant to say, what are the limitations of ucs.sty / [utf8]inputenc
at the moment because I wonder whether we still may call unicode
support "experimental" (that's what the German version says at this
point), or "a work in progress". So would it be right to say that
unicode input in LaTeX works well at this point as far as the Western
languages are concerned? All the rest you may want to use it for is
still incomplete?
