Whatever the answer is, dealing with it will be at least as much of a
difficulty in a system which does not permit Korean element names as
it will be in one which does. Element names written in untillegible
English and documented in Korean are likely to be more of a barrier
than ones written in comprehensible Korean and documented in the same.
