    It's an illustration that when "anything goes", people might try many
    things. If one had a dancing pig icon referenced in the PUA, it would
    take less band-width to transmit and store than the RTF example sent
    earlier by Peter Constable, would it not? Likewise for other RTF data.
    If several vendors used the courtyard codes private agreement, it would
    be a de-facto standard. Its existence as a set might tend to push it
    inside the line.
