Thanks, I had not thought about that.  I'm thinking wording something 
like this is more appropriate

"Noncharacters may be openly interchanged, but it is inadvisable to do 
so without prior agreement, since at each stage any of them might be 
replaced by a REPLACEMENT CHARACTER or otherwise disposed of, at the 
sole discretion of that stage's implementation."
