Thatís fine, but my note was about universal availability.
Technologically oriented people tend to overemphasize the newest
technology. What about the literally billions of old devices and old
software around? Their users wonít know how to type the new symbol, and
if they get data containing it, no matter how properly encoded, they
will see just a box, or a question mark, or something Ė at least until
they upload and install a font containing the new symbol.
