I believe the following questions need to be answered, possibly in an
Annex, as part of the decision to encode emoji:
1. How to distinguish between emoji whose fundamental character
identity involves color, such as the heart images from e-B13 through
e-B16, using a conventional monochrome rendering system.
2. How to distinguish between emoji whose fundamental character
identity involves animation, such as e-B09 BLACK QUESTION MARK and e-B0A
WHITE QUESTION MARK, using a conventional non-animated rendering system.
The solution might be to employ a shading/hatching scheme for color, and
little cartoon-like "motion lines" for animation, as discussed earlier.
Or it might simply be decided that these glyphs will be rendered
identically with existing fonts and rendering engines and on printed
