    I'm assuming you read the page on PUA handling in MS software. So, are you
    saying what you'd like to see added in that case (and likewise for other
    platforms) is a summary showing for the entire BMP PUA which sub-ranges may
    be problematic in MS software? If so, I agree that would be useful, but
    would take a little more research for Windows.
