This is not correct, at least as of Unicode 2.0 (and 10646 too).
The Miscellaneous Symbols block is the whole Row 2600-26FF. There
is no grid in Chapter 7 of Unicode 2.0 for these 8 columns because no
characters are allocated there, so this hole should be reported
within Misc. Symbols.

You omit a five-column hole at D7B0-D7FF, between Hangul Syllables
and High Surrogates. The Everson map (3.3) incorrectly shows only
a 4-column hole.

This is a hole within CJK Compat Ideos; same argument as above.
