This is not specifically the elementary charge.

This is not specifically the speed of light.

This is not specifically the fine structure constant.

Do you mean U+210E should be used as a "*general* mathematical
[or physical] italic small h"?
Should it be used for, say, height?
Should it be used for, say, specific enthalpy?
If so, then U+210E is *not* Planck's constant.
