A new era of encoding

One week to go for the Public  Review on QID Emoji.

Then a report from the Emoji Subcommittee about what they propose.

Then consideration by the Unicode Technical Committee.

In my opinion this has implications far beyond just emoji, because what 
is under consideration is the introduction of an auxiliary encoding 
space, with its own map of code points. So if one auxiliary encoding 
space is introduced, then there is the possibility of other such 
auxiliary encoding spaces becoming introduced.

I consider that the introduction of such auxiliary encoding spaces will 
be a good thing, with great benefits.

It will allow new concepts to become implemented in a rigorous 
interoperable format.
