> That's why U+1F481 INFORMATION DESK PERSON is listed with the keyword "sassy" in the Unicode emoji table (besides "tipping hand"). Which helps a lot, because the keywords are used by input methods to search characters; if no one bothered to keep track of how people are using emoji, then people would try looking for the "sassy" gesture and find nothing, and they'd have to learn that it's called "information desk person", even though no one uses it with this meaning.

Maybe, but that’s not what’s actually done.
