    Ever heard of Shavian and Deseret? They're reformed alphabets for
    English that have been encoded. The reason why your group hasn't had
    its characters encoded probably is because nobody actually uses them.
    It's all about whether it's being used, not whether someone feels it's
    a mistake that should be fixed.
