Either we are going to propose these be added to Unicode as non-PUA
characters, or we are not. If not, there is nothing more that needs
discussion with regard to possible codepoint allocation, I think. As for
PUA, many people have their own plans regarding U+F300..U+F3FF. For my own
part, my plans for U+F300..U+F3FF almost certainly do not involve padlock
