    Well, CJK-C has U+2A700, U+2A701 and U+2A7EA, as well as one
    two-stroke character, U+2A70B.

    My surprise is that it is such an obvious character to create that
    no-one did so hundreds of years ago, and that if anyone did create the
    character that it was not publicised enough to make its way into the
    Kangxi dictionary, and hence into Unicode CJK-B or earlier.
