The Unicode Standard 4.0, page 7:
1.6 Submitting New Characters
"The Unicode Consortium accepts proposals for inclusion of new characters
and scripts in the Unicode Standard. All proposals must be in writing, must
include at least one picture of each proposed character (normally from a
printed source), and must include significant documentation justifying the
proposal. Those considering submitting a proposal should first determine
whether a particular script or character has already been proposed. The
identification of the sponsor(s) must be included, along with a postal
address and an electronic mail address or phone number. Please consult the
Unicode Consortium's Web site (http://www.unicode.org) for the most current
guidelines. ... "
Looks to me the pictures don't _have_ to be from a printed source but can be
just written by hand.

If you assign code points in the PUA to your glyphs it does not matter which
code points that are, since those codepoints then will not be used anyway.
