Not only are surrogate pairs unsupported, even the possibility of having them in one deadtrans entry seems to be definitely blocked:

I would like to define a DEADTRANSEXT function delivering two code units instead of one; but it seems to me that I'm dreaming. There must be an API behind that wouldn't recognize this. I hope I'm wrong.

Thanks for the information.
