You know, until the next hardcopy publication is released, it might be
possible to configure the list processor to detect references to U+20A0 and
simply forward a form letter :-)

Even better:

Maybe we could start a propaganda campaign to convince people that U+20A0 is
actually the apostrophe that Quebec is so rigorously trying to eliminate.
Then, every time someone uses it as the EU currency symbol, they will receive
a legal-looking warning letter from the language police in Montreal :-)

Frightening enough to make people stop using U+20A0? I think so!
