The PUA was originally and informally divided into a Corporate Use
Subarea, starting from U+F8FF and working down, and an End-User Subarea,
starting from U+E000 and working up.
This wording is still in TUS 5.0 (page 547), but you don't hear much
about it nowadays. It dates from a time when it was thought that
corporations would make more, and better publicized, use of private-use
characters, before the current Zeitgeist that the PUA is something to be
avoided at virtually all costs.
