I'm not wildly opposed to these -- maybe more so to the more recent idea
of variation selectors to transform currency symbols into emoji -- but I
wonder if there is really a demand for such images, especially at the
small size normally associated with emoji, or if this is simply
speculation. At least in principle, "expected usage level" is supposed
to be one factor that speaks for or against encoding.
