    This is a bad decision. Font designers need to cool their heels and
    wait until the symbol and code point are approved.

    I can understand overzealous font makers adding this glyph as soon as it
    is formally accepted for a given version of Unicode/10646 and that
    version goes into beta, but right now is waaay too early.
