Hmmm, if that is true, it's possbile to support it in the
current Emacs.  Emacs repsents Big5 characters in two
charsets chinese-big5-1 and chinese-big5-2 internally.  The
former contains Big5 chars #xA140 .. #xC8FE, the latter
#xC940..#xFEFE.  That means that chinese-big5-1 still has a
room for that additional 1500 character.

If BIG5-HKSCS surely just adds characters to BIG5, I think
it is reasonable to fallback to BIG5.  But, as I wrote
above, it seems possible to support the whole BIG5-HKSCS in
the current Emacs with a faily small effort.   Could you
please wait for a while?
