Thank you.  Your question seems to have answered mine.

If nobody can produce exhibits, then it makes sense that these 
characters weren't included in the Standard.

Meanwhile I've removed these glyphs and their associated ligatures from 
the font I'm trying to update.  If they ever get proposed and accepted, 
the glyphs can be reinstated.
