Yes, but you don't encode the images directly; you establish a naming
convention for known images (outside of Unicode) and put those names in
your documents/messages. The names would be written in a special script
set aside for just that purpose, similar to how plane 14 language tag
characters are used to indicate a language.

You would only need a small allocation for a Rick Astley Moves script
that would be used to name your favorite moves. Then you'd include
those names in messages to your friends in the Rick Astley Fan Club.
The names are interpreted by your fan club software and the correct
videos are shown.

Not going there.
