    I was quite surprised when I noted that a "combining large X overlay"
    was not included in the Combining Diacritical Marks block (which
    contains mostely non-diacriticals, rather iconic symbols, BTW).

    We have enclosing diamond and circlr and square, we have an enclosing
    slashed circle, and even an enclosing keycap... so why not an X overlay?
    Any idea why doesn't it exists, any current projects (missing also in
    the pipeline and roadmap, AFAICT), perhaps why is it a bad idea...?

    Can anyone just step forward and propose U+20E4 for a "combining large X
    overlay" and call it a day?
