    The symbol for Planck's constant (6.626E-34 Js) is an italic "h".
    Why is there a special Unicode character U+210E for it?

    The symbol for the elementary charge is an italic "e".
    But of course there is no special Unicode character for it.

    The symbol for the speed of light is an italic "c".
    But of course there is no special Unicode character for it.

    The symbol for the fine structure constant is an italic "alpha".
    But of course there is no special Unicode character for it.

    etc. ad inf.

    So what's this U+210E for?
    IMHO, this character should be listed as deprecated.
