I think we can consider all alphabetic and numberical characters safe in whatever script as well as Hanzi and Kanji.

It would seem to mean anything that is neither Chinese Characters or Alphanumeric in any script is potentially under threat.

I personally doubt, however, that these recommendations would be implemented except where there is a sound technical rational for doing so.
