    I would not say that, it would be excessive.
    An application can use PUA the way it wants, but not line ill-formed
    encoding sequences or non-characters.

    Instead the application should choose the way to manage them. I think that
    many applications choose to handle them like non-combining spacing
    characters with "weak" LTR directionality (like punctuation, or ideographic
    characters), and display a narrow white box.
