We don't add nonce characters to the standard just because someone thinks
they'd be a good idea; there needs to be established usage by a substantial
user community. We established a huge range (over 100,000 characters) for
private use. You (or William Overington, for example) are free to define a
range within that area for your specific use. If there develops
a substantial user community for the new characters, you could then create a
proposal for adding them to the Unicode Standard.
So I suggest that you spend your efforts on building such a community if you
want to move this forward; more emails to this list will not accomplish
