UTF-32 represents the exact same amount of characters as UTF-8 or UTF-16. What you are saying doesn't make much sense.

Also, you said it didn't include all the Chinese characters. I think you are mistaken, and you mention the lack of traditional kanji as an example. What happens is that the simplified and traditional versions correspond to same codepoint and it's up to the font to display the correct glyph.
