    Defining Web protocols isn't really something the Unicode Consortium has
    historically gotten itself involved in. You might check with the World
    Wide Wide Consortium and see if they consider it within their scope.

    Additionally, there are plenty of solutions to the Unicode character-map
    problem, for both Web and desktop. My favorite is BabelMap, but some
    prefer Web-based approaches like . A special protocol
    just for this purpose might or might not gain support.
