I agree with others that an encoding with a two-dimensional coordinate
system that goes beyond "this symbol goes above and to the left of that
symbol" is out of scope for Unicode.
Being able to map an arbitrary data representation model onto Plane 15
code points is not the same as saying "this model can be encoded in
UTF-8," as if the only hurdle left in fitting the model into Unicode
were to move the code points off the PUA.
It would be a Good Thing to be able to represent SignWriting on
computers in a portable way, but the present proposal does not reflect
how Unicode works.
