Probably not; adobe-standard had them long before CNS 11643 was published,

No. In non-East-Asian practice yes, since the Microsoft extensions of the
ISO character sets included them between 0x80 and 0xA0. This range is
defined by the ISO as control characters, and used in East Asia (and in
Emacs internationalisation, since the bulk of the design was done in Japan)

(If it?s falling back, it?s to the US layout, yes.)

Mule-UCS isn?t necessary and doesn?t work on 21.5; if you have recent
versions of the packages, that line should give you an error message. Try
(unless (>= 5 emacs-minor-version)

The rest of your lines seem reasonable.
