Apologies in advance for asking an annoying "what are your motives"
question, but:

What is your goal in classifying a character as "emoji" or "not emoji"?

According to emoji-data.txt, U+00A9 COPYRIGHT SIGN and U+00AE REGISTERED
SIGN are emoji, while U+263B BLACK SMILING FACE is not. This may be at
variance with what many people would expect.
