I had a few problems with compiler limits in this area in Saxon too, though
my approach is a bit different. I ended up creating a source module
containing the raw data in which the lists of integers are represented as
strings containing comma-separated base-32 values; I then parse the strings
out into the run-time tables needed to drive the algorithm. Don't ask me why
it wasn't base-64, I'm sure it made sense at the time.

I've done something like that too in a different method. I suspect we're doing it for the same reason: lookup tables that cover the entire Basic Multilingual Plane to enable fast checking of various character properties.
