I got quite a few messages like this when UTC approved the legacy
computing characters in L2/19-025 last January. Great, that means I'll
be able to start using and exchanging them in March, when Unicode 12.1
is released, right? Uh, no:
1. What Ken said above.
2. Unicode 12.1 was always just about the Reiwa sign.
3. Even when 13 comes out, fonts won't be immediately and magically
updated to include them.
