    Nor is that how mathematical alphanumeric symbols are used. But they are
    still given compatibility and collation data as if they were. I am
    simply looking for some consistency, and less confusion for the ordinary
    user of the collation charts who shouldn't see these letters highlighted
    at the top level, but rather hidden among a whole lot of other font
    variants used only for special purposes.
