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
http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/fdfa . A special protocol
just for this purpose might or might not gain support.
