I think you're OK if you re-read what Deborah wrote:

and just try to keep your PUA assignments down in the U+E000 "end user"
end, and away from the U+F8FF "corporate use" end. Of course, if you
have more than a couple thousand PUA characters, you may find out the
hard way where Apple is drawing the line.
