I believe that standardizing A numbers for allergens, as Mr Overington suggests commenting the interesting blog post he's sharing, is an excellent idea.


I think so because these numbers be added to the names, this would be even better than the E numbers, behind which often the additives are hidden, some of which have long-time harmful effects, and the continuous consumption of most of which causes overall health issues. 


Consequently, there are good solutions on-going, so that the support Unicode cannot safely provide, will be replaced.


Best regards,
