'in the hope of providing some Unicode compatible code points for
symbols'

It is explicitly stated in the ISO standard document for Unicode that using
code points unspecified by the standard for private, application-specific,
or proprietary use is not encouraged and is not standard.

'Unicode compatible code points for symbols' is not possible. At minimum,
oxymoron, at worst, gross violation of international law.

What a shame. Great idea, but completely illegal.
