I'm deeply impressed that dictionary contains grammar for registered
trademarks. Google and Microsoft are also there, but not Oracle. I'm not
confident i understand how that works.

To compare to Cambridge Dictionary:

Apparently "google" is a verb as in "to google", and this is why it's in
the dictionary, but "Microsoft" and "Unicode" are missing.

I believe "Юникод" in Russian is just a foreign word adopted by
language, and it's a russism, it's a way of saying "Unicode" in Russian
(phonetically the same). So apparently word "юникод" was adopted as a
noun, similarly to how "google" was adopted in English as a verb.
