With roman numerals, yes. However, the quality of the korean characters may
be better, I cannot tell ...

English should suffice...

Or just replace the literal Roman numeral Unicode characters with
combinations of ASCII chars i, v and x rsp I, V, and X.

OTOH, as this is actually a documentation for the 8-bit LaTeX CJK-ko
package, we may also decide that this is a limitation we can live with,
ignore XeTeX for this document and, maybe, relyx xetexko-doc.tex for
Korean with XeTeX.
