Fantastic news, but I personally think that the decision to include
the four characters at U+9FCD through U+9FD0 in the Adobe Source Han /
Noto Sans Simplified Chinese fonts (and U+9FD0 in the Traditional
Chinese fonts) is extremely premature given that these characters have
only just been added to the draft repertoire for ISO/IEC 10646:2014
Amd. 2, and have not yet completed even their first round of the ISO
balloting process.  As such the code point allocations are not stable,
and should not be used in fonts for public consumption.
