Actually, I proposed it (see my web site). People wanted to know if it was
really required as a stand-alone character in text, and what if anything
its relationship was to the COMBINING RECYCLE ICON which can take numbers
and letters inside it to (in the US) inform people of types of plastics etc.

Perhaps you could help provide such information.
