    Many of the very low codepoints are defned for compatibility reasons
    (e.g. all the accented characters, which can all be represented as
    the base letter + combining diacritics). Of course a fraktur font
    may decide to represent all s except the ending-s as long-s (where
    "ending" may be in the middle of concatenated words).

    Best regards.
