    You *could* use that sequence, and if your rendering implementation
    were sophisticated enough, it *might* render what you were

    My recommendation, however, is just to pursue encoding of this
    as a symbol character and be done with it. Compared to the
    similar pile of stuff at 2460..24FF and 3200..32FF this one
    additional circled letter symbol would be a drop in the ocean.
    Or.... perhaps in this case, a grain of sand in the desert.
