I was surprised to find out that there are gaps in the Mathematical

alphanumeric symbols block (U+1d400 to u+1d7ff). The gaps are associated

with the inclusion of similar symbols in other blocks, chiefly the

Letterlike Symbols Block.

Examples of such gaps include U+1d49d, U+1d506, etc.

But as a matter of convenience and simplicity, these missing codepoints

could have been defined, as decomposing directly to the equivalents in

Letterlike symbols, in the same manner that the Ångström sign decomposes to

the letter Å. That would make these ranges contiguous.

Is there a policy about leaving gaps in otherwise contiguous ranges of

codepoints?
