    I see this makes sense. It had occurred to me that it might stand for
    technetium, but, as you state above, U+939D is listed on my chart.

    Thanks for that. Since the relationship wasn't declared in Unihan
    4.1.0, I had trouble finding it. Since Unihan is a work in progress, I
    entirely understand these discrepancies. That's largely the reason I'm
    trying to contribute to their correction.

    I'd be glad to. I didn't find any reference to it on the Unicode page,
    so I wasn't actually aware of its existence. Could you please give me
    information about how to subscribe?
