It sounds like you’re trying to encode glyphs or glyph fragments, not characters. There is a virtually endless repertoire of “shapes” that could be encoded, but unless each of these is a character actually used in a writing system (not just hypothetically), it’s probably not appropriate for a character encoding.

About the research works.
I alone (with with my colleagues) researching the fact that
Sumerian is Tamil / Tamil is Sumerian
This requires quite a lot of space.
Additionally I do research on Tamil alphabet as based on scientific definitions and it only represents the mechanical parts , ie only represents the places of articulation as alphabet and not sound based. And, what is call a mathematical multiplier theory on expanding the alphabets leads to not just long-mathematics (nedung kaNaku), but also to extra long mathematics.
This is just a sample requirement from me and my colleagues. How many others are there who would require Unicode support? Do you think allocating 32,000 to the code page model would help?
