I think that a key statement that you have missed is at the end of
which says:
“The fact that a symbol merely ‘seems to be useful or potentially
useful’ is precisely not a reason to code it. Demonstrated usage, or
demonstrated demand, on the other hand, does constitute a good reason to
encode the symbol.”

Note that the usage or demand needs to relate to use in text, not as
standalone symbols. Moreover, demonstrated actual usage in texts tends
to have much better chances than even well-described demand.
