Italics aren't a novel concept. The approach for encoding new
characters is that conventions for them exist and that people *are*
exchanging them, people have exchanged them in the past, or that people
demonstrably *need* to exchange them.
Excluding emoji, any suggestion or proposal whose premise is "It seems
to me that it would be useful if characters supporting <this or
that>..." is doomed to be deemed out of scope for the standard.
