    But we're not encoding dominos per se, but rather encoding representations of
    domino pieces in textual contexts. Whilst pictures of domino sets are
    interesting, and provide useful background information, I would imagine that
    examples of the textual usage of domino glyphs is what is required in order for
    domino characters to be accepted for encoding by the UTC and WG2.
