In relation to localizable sentences, I feel that the answer is yes.
The http://www.unicode.org/consortium/distlist.html includes the following.
Discussion list for Unicode and general internationalization issues.
About 750 members world-wide, discuss such subjects as: implementing the Unicode Standard, discussion of new proposals, etc.
... and cultural phenomena.
So the localizable sentences are, I feel, on-topic for this list.
In relation to the 7-sided dice, please consider how the matter arose.
Nearby in the code charts is seven contiguous code space positions used for indicating various types of recyclable plastic.
Now, since I am posting anyway, maybe I may mention something.
I did think of posting, but did not do so so as not to go too far off-topic, a note in the seven-sided die thread that, although I had not known of Quadratic Reciprocity until I read about it in the thread: would it solve the implied challenge to suggest that a seven-sided die, with faces numbered 0 through to 6 and on each face the word true or the word false added, as appropriate for Quadratic Reciprocity, could be manufactured?
