No, they are provided for any case that you want to transmit 'final-form'
output for Braille, i.e. *after* the appropriate mapping has been done from
Unicode characters to the Braille system the user is using.

to communicate that result to another device was explicitly requested by
the proponents of the Braille encoding in Unicode.
