to answer the question cited below: I see the proposed EXTERNAL LINK
INDICATOR (as it is called in my recent draft) somewhere between
U+2386 ENTER SYMBOL and U+240D SYMBOL FOR CARRIAGE RETURN, in the
sense of your question. Talking in analogies, I see it even nearer
to U+00A9 COPYRIGHT SIGN and U+26A0 WARNING SIGN.
btw, thank you for the detailed discussion of my proposal in your
previous mail, which will take me some more time to answer.
There will be a third draft in some days when my time allows.
