Then how would you access such a character?
Currently, this is defined by the font + the codepoint. I.E. to
display a certain character on the screen, you tell the computer
which font to use and which codepoint to output.
If a font's codepoints are not fixed, how do you display this
character? I.E. if a certain character is not fixed at U+EF00, you
cannot simply have a text file with the value 0xEF00 in it and
expect it to print.
