    The limitation in range does not imply that the need be more than simply
    non-negative integers. Please check the definitions in UTR17 and TUS4 ch 3.

    Of course, the range of integers 0 - 0x10FFFF would require 21 bits to
    represent directly in binary. But the definition of codepoints does not
    refer in any way to binary representation.
