You can always take two codes of the existing characters and stick a ZWJ
between them (or something like that). You don't *have to* add
codepoints all the time.
The question of glyphs, fonts and rendering, is one that is related to
text encoding, but there does not have to be a 1:1 codepoint-to-glyph
correspondence (and very often, there is not for other writing systems).
