    What people do in their bedrooms behind closed doors isn't the business of
    the Unicode Consortium, but publicly, the Unicode Consortium will tell you
    that they are not allowed to define their own VS sequences and claim
    conformance with the Unicode Standard. MathML is a public context, and I
    would assume that the developers of MathML have every intent of maintaining
    conformance with Unicode.
