Abstract emoji

I notice that Public Review 408 QID Emoji has been reopened with a new 
closing date of 9 July 2020.

i wonder if a good mailing list discussion of whether abstract emoji 
should become implemented, either as part of QID emoji or however the 
QID emoji idea becomes adapted, or direct into regular Unicode, can take 


If abstract emoji are allowed then it would greatly increase the 
expressive capability of emoji, including for communication through the 
language barrier; however, the meaning of each of at least some abstract 
emoji would need to be learned by end users. So some quantity of 
abstract emoji might be good, too many could be confusing. So what would 
be best please?
