Ask William Overington how receptive Unicode is to this idea.

You'd be amazed how quickly 137,000 code points would fill up, as every
high school kid who's ever invented an alphabet rushes to "register" it
Not to mention the fact that the PUA would no longer be available for
"real" private use.
No, I'm afraid this is not going to happen.
