Category talk:Han characters from which hiragana were derived


I need clarification for this category. The title of this category is fairly clear. However, it is more complicated in practice. For example, the sound /a/ may be written in four hiragana, which derive from 安, 阿, 愛, and 悪. However, only one of these hiragana are available for data entry: あ; the others are obsolete and not in any major encoding standard. Is it still appropriate to sort these under あ? Or would sorting them under a be more appropriate? Whatever is decided can be applied to the other sounds. I will hold off on adding more until a decision is made.
