So the "please don't" about which I have inquired earlier is a "you
mustn't" and "charts" includes the small GIFs?

Okay, due to the unexpected protest I have made the unicode.bdf.gz
unreadable until this is settled.

According to most dictionaries, an APPLE is as innocent a fruit
growing on trees as a BELL is a musical instrument rather than a
corporate logo. A standardized APPLE character could of course be
used for technical documentation describing Macintosh screens,
keyboards and charsets, though.

And is U+3004 JAPANESE INDUSTRIAL STANDARD SYMBOL no corporate symbol?

Хрущёв is *transscribed* as "Khrushchev" into English and as
"Chruschtschow" into German but transcription != transliteration.
