The CLDR Survey Tool is currently open to, among other things, collect improvements to (emoji) character names and keywords. I don't see it being done for any language yet, but wouldn't it make sense to add classic emoticons (like :-) for various smiling emojis), kaomoji (like o/ for Person Raising Hand) and ASCII art (like ><)))°> and similar for Fish) to the keywords of Face emoji?
