    Philippe, it is very obvious that you are as much a novice concerning
    Urdu as John Snow. So please leave this part of the question to the
    experts and stop confusing John.

    All of the languages John named are supported entirely in the BMP, as
    you know very well. So any mention of anything outside the BMP is
    totally irrelevant and only serves to confuse a novice.
