How does this compare to unmapped glyphs in Type1 fonts, which can be
made accessible by re-encoding the font? Are they hidden at a deeper
level, or is it essentially the same thing? Do they get glyph names so a
program that can parse the font file can identify and use them even
though they are not mapped?
