The solution is clear: set aside a whole plane of Unicode as the SEP
(supplementary ellipsis plane). For example, let the SEP be plane 8,
then encode U+80004 FOUR DOT ELLIPSIS, U+80005 FIVE DOT ELLIPSIS etc.
through U+8FFFF SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE DOT
ELLIPSIS, which should be enough for most purposes.
