This is not correct. It is certainly not correct for CJK characrters 
added to Unicode, and to the best of my knowledge it one just makes up a 
new character for one's name it is now no longer possible to legally 
register it anywhere that uses Chinese characters. Take Extension F, 
over seven thousand characters of which nearly three thousand Japanese 
characters in Budhist texts, over one thousand Zhuang characters, naerly 
two thousand characters used in Korean historical texts.
