    I take it you mean that the type design is totally up to the designer I
    understand that.

    It does make sense if in this case they both refer to the same character,
    because if they do not then there's a need to disambiguate into separate code
    points for all I know. And that's what I am in essence trying to find out.
    That I am in fact working with the right characters and yes then you
    automatically come to how a certain glyph is given form, especially if you
    also have to provide a means to look them up by radical(s). And then any
    unexplained inconsistency by the Unicode reference glyphs causes eyebrows to
    get raised.
