    It's hardly rocket science: don't go making changes that will cause
    existing data to display differently than it did before (unless you are
    making bug fixes to correct display that users consider incorrect). In
    particular, if a character maps to some glyph X, don't revise a font to
    make it map instead to some different glyph Y.
