Sorry to be late with this, but if 20.1 bits turn out to not be enough,
what about 21 bits?
That would still limit UTF-8 to four bytes, but would almost double the
code space. Assuming (conservatively) that it will take about a century
to fill up all 17 (well, actually 15, because two are private) planes,
this would give us another century.
Just one more crazy idea :-(.
