Very important argument.

Though there may have been cases of precedence: Like U+201C ... having
been "added to" U+0022 which has been used even long before the idea of
a unicode and is still being used in their stead for many reasons?
Similarly the "short long dash" (a more realistic name for U+002D than
HYPHEN-MINUS) has been "disunified" into U+2010 ... U+2014, just
retaining its abiguity.
