    I presume there are some success stories for this process: Some
    character, or even better a script or other coherent collection of
    characters, is in use for some time in the PUA, and is then elevated
    by ISO/UTC to an officially blessed region in Unicode. Can someone
    relate such a story, or at least point to a current Unicode character/
    script that followed that path?
