    And must not be used after unassigned characters as well...

    But can we use them after PUAs, to render specific variants of characters in
    specialized fonts made for scripts without a current standard?
    Or should we encode all these variants as plain PUAs as well?

    I think for example about the 2 or 3 variants that exist for most of the 195
    Mende-Kikakui syllables... (Of course we can encode all of them separately but
    there may exist some rule to infer which variant to use, or some local
    usages/preferences for the recognizable glyph).
