The quoted indicators for benefit were part of a concern of the German
NB regarding the Wingding/Webding proposals. The concern expressed in
WG2 N4085 is that some characters proposed there conform neither to the
policy statements by UTC or WG2, nor to the indicators of benefit
which the German NB would accept as an additional reason to encode
Wingding/Webding characters beyond the formal policies of UTC and WG2.
