    I'm hoping that future ConScript assignments to the BMP PUA continue to
    start at the low end and work their way up, as almost all do already,
    instead of starting from the top like Klingon and Aiha. I do understand
    the assignment of Klingon from U+F8D0 to U+F8FF was for compatibility
    with an existing Linux mapping.
