A (hopefully non-trivial) question

Being rather new to the list and the Unicode topic, I'd like
nonetheless to enquire why...

...among the glyphs found on the gifs on the Unicode pages, some
characters look fine, but others OTOH look like crude drawings? Eg.
the glyphs numbered 047A-047E from the Cyrillic block, as opposed
to the basic Cyrillic alphabet.. For this reason they cannot be
directly scanned and included into a font, but a new glyph must be
constructed from scratch. This does not facilitate making fonts,
especially with glyphs never seen before
