I realize that rationalists have difficulties with pragmatics.
But yeah. So?
Character encoding involves decisions that weigh many principles,
precedents, and practices. The Unicode Standard doesn't encode
trademarked logos, *even* if they occur in vendor character
encodings that people need to interoperate with. And the
precedent for that practice dates back to 1989, when the first
drafts of Unicode were cross-mapped with the MacRoman character
So conversion of the Japanese telco SJIS gaiji for their
logo characters will involve fallbacks that might not roundtrip
exactly -- which is really no different than the situation for
the (non)-interoperability for such logo characters between
the three sets now anyway.
