But then you loose round trip behavior, which is necessary in some
applications. In cases like this I (and others, e.g., Microsoft) map
one of the ambiguous code-points to the PUA: which allows you to round
Of course if you are unconcerned with maintaining round-trip behavior
(e.g., you just want to convert the text to Unicode so you can
display/edit it), then you map both legacy code points to the same
Unicode codepoint and be done with it.
