See, this is why people have to stop talking about how evil and
dangerous the PUA is. Creative minds look for alternatives such as
"extending" the Unicode architecture beyond plane 16, which is orders of
magnitude more evil and dangerous.
The Plane 14 language tags, which we all know are deprecated and
considered totally unnecessary, were created in direct response to a
similar proposal to "extend" UTF-8 by using invalid code unit sequences
to encode language tags.
