A possible compromise would be to use the Private Use Area (PUA).  If
you need single characters, it may be an appropriate solution.  It might
even be better to use the PUA (codepoints U+E000 to U+F8FF) than to be
assigned a block in the Supplementary Multilingual Plane (SMP) U+1xxxx
or the 'deprecated' plane U+Exxxx.
