This is already the case in plain-text using the linear notation that is

almost standardized.

Also for mathematics, using math formula renderers like TeX or LaTeX you can

do that with "\left(" and "\right)" (substitute parentheses with other

pairs).

See MANY examples on any edition of Wikipedia where MathML is heavily used

in almost all articles with mathematical topics. Start by the mathemetics

category or portal of each wiki...

The MathML or TeX notations are widely understood and well supported, their

implementation in many popular websites like Wikipedia, or well known

word-processors (like Microsoft Office/Word or Openoffice) is a proof that

this use is not restricted to only official scientific papers published by

mathematicians.

Unicode also includes decomposed characters for composing them in plain-text

using 2-parts or 3-parts glyphs over several successive lines, using a

monospaced font, because they were present in legacy charsets. This works

very reliably for example in emails typically rendered with monospaced

fonts.

So that's much enough to satisfy all needs! We really don't need more

characters for them.
