(1) It's more than MS's WGL4 :-) (around 665)

(2) If you leave out the ideographic character sets, 
then a few thousand is all that is left ...

(3) The glyph names in that list cover all of the 2200 odd fonts in the
Adobe Type Library (AFIK), so they correspond at least to some
commonly used ones...

(4) It's useful as a starting point.  It would be a pity to ignore
it and start from scratch...
