Too late for that already. 1D80-1DBF is already chockablock with
phonetic symbols of far better claim to the space than subscript
By the way, as an aside, whenever anyone on this list suggests
that such-and-such should go in such-and-such a place in Unicode,
it behooves you to check the book and then *also* check the
pipeline page. There are already nearly a couple of thousand
characters preliminarily encoded past the Unicode 4.0 repertoire,
so don't expect that any particular position open in Unicode 4.0
is available for encoding your favorite proposal.
