Not users' whims, but rather marketing departments' whims. The set of
characters proposed for encoding is whimsical in too many ways to
list; is there any evidence that inventing new characters has stopped?

I could not find a note in any document stating that the proposed set
is final and there will never be another proposal to encode more
