    If it's good enough to refuse to encode some North Korean
    ideosyncracies, it's good enough to do the same for flags and other
    proprietary symbols.

    Let's say the Swiss decide to change to a rectangular flag instead of
    the square one, or the Australians decide to get a flag without the UK
    one on it: would they get a new flag character to distinguish the new
    flag from the old one, or does the font have to change?

    Flags and proprietary symbols are not static, and should not be
    encoded. Here be dragons.
