Keeping in mind that it is easier to transcode an existing corpus than
to enter one from scratch, and if no firm corpus currently exists,
is it better to:
1) Do nothing while awaiting official code points?
2) Enter data/text using an ASCII-masquerade (hack) encoding?
3) Enter data/text using valid Unicode wherever possible along with
Private Use Area code points to temporarily fill gaps?
