    You can look at to see
    what's in the pipeline, but note that code points are not yet definite.
    There will be a beta period, beginning in January I believe.

    Our choice of code points s relevant only for our users and those with whom
    we might interchange data. Once we have implementations, such info will be
    available either with those implementations or on our Web site for the
    benefit of those using those implementations. I don't see any reason to
    discuss this on this list.

    I can't comment about rendering systems in general: some may have issues
    that others do not have.
