    Well, maybe people that care about particular characters can learn from this that, just because most font designers ignored these in the past, it doesn't mean they will always ignore them in the future, so that should be pro-active in submitting problem reports for badly-designed representative glyphs.

    Industry hasn't invested in development of Unicode just so they could do the same things they did in the past except in a different way. ;-)
