As Asmus mentioned, this one is already on its way. It is encoded in
Amendment 18 to 10646, which is just entering its last round of ballotting:
U+2426 SYMBOL FOR SUBSTITUTE FORM TWO
with the requisite shape of the reversed question mark.
This character is derived from ISO 2047, also shows up in DIN 66 213,
and in various terminal emulations.
