Because, despite its name, it isn't really Script Capital P at all. Because of
unfortunate unification, three different characters were lumped together at
U+2118: Script Capital P, Weierstrass P, and Powerset symbol.
The picture in the UNicode 2.0 book clearly shows a Weierstrass P and if I got
the news right, it will continue to be a Weierstrass P -- under the wrong name,
Powerset symbol looks like a >>Capital Weierstrass P<<, while Capital Script P
should have a different shape (like in Kuenstler Script fonts).
