From a sampling of the web (about .7M docs), the most common supplementary
characters are, curiously, private use. Top is [?] U+FEB85. For Han, the top
few are: 𣿡, 𠀤, 𩇫, 𥑬, 𤥂, 𡛺, 𤎌, 𠜎,... There are also, oddly, some
Gothic and Shavian characters.
However, the data gets pretty noisy; it would take a bigger sample to get
more reliable data.
