Well, participation would be purely voluntary. If people who are interested managed to produce a system that was helpful for people to communicate across language barriers, then I feel that that would be beneficial generally and would do no harm to Unicode and could even be good for Unicode.
Please consider the emoji. Before they were encoded into Unicode 6.0 the codepoints that they now occupy were unused. Now those codepoints are used. Unicode has produced something useful in those codepoints where there was nothing there previously.
The whole of Unicode has been about producing progress by inventing something from where there was nothing before.
