    Actually, since these are compatibility characters, you'd need TWO phone
    providers to add it to their repertoire of symbols. There are no compatibility
    issues in a single repertoire. I'd like to see a note in the Emoji code charts
    that identifies the emoji/emoticons as compatibility characters in order to
    help preempt these sorts of proposals.
