    I do not buy this reasoning. If not for mathematical usage,
    blackletter wouldn't have been disunified from antiqua, and any
    attempts at "if I send you a message with a blackletter 𝔐, I want you
    to see a blackletter 𝔐" would have been met with "use rich text".
    Unless a context exists in which divination tarot cards coexist with
    playing cards and the otherwise equivalent cards have a semantic
    distinction, there is no reason to disunify.
