I agree with Michael. The question is whether these need to be used in plain
text as characters. Clearly we cannot encode every possible icon or picture in
Unicode, nor anything posted on a web page. For example, we wouldn't encode the
icon for "Time travel is an excellent option after a terrorist attack. Remember,
you must reach exactly 88 mph and hit the dangling power line in order for the
flux capacitor to operate properly." (Google).
