As such, I only point out possibilities, without giving suggestions
which way to go.
If one so wants, one can add all the glyphs one wants, adding a
property field saying that it is a rendering character. These will
not then disturb the other characters, which are semantic in nature.
One reason for doing it, is that if one has a Unicode font, then
those glyphs become available. It seems me that is just a question of
how to make these glyphs accessible.
The above should not be construed as though I suggest that this is
what one should really do. I can think of many possibilities.
