    Although we all know (or should know) that the use of Variation Selectors is
    strictly regulated by Unicode, and they should not be used in sequences that are
    not specified in the Standardized Variants document, I wonder whether Variation
    Selectors could be used legitimately with PUA codepoints (as the use of the PUA
    is unregulated by Unicode) ?

    Just think of all the fun William could have with 256 variants of each of the
    137,468 PUA codepoints - 35,191,808 characters to play with ...
