In addition to Eris, there is also a related issue for Pluto. The encoding of U+26E2 ⛢, separate from U+2645 ♅, for Uranus, seems to set a precedent, and there are at least 3 extra symbols for Pluto that are in use. This has been discussed before. Should these (or at least the most common one) be encoded as well?
