The proposal itself looks good.  It’s well documented with adequate 

But the practice of issuing fonts with glyphs already mapped to proposed 
characters should be discouraged.  There is no guarantee that the 
requested code points will be the eventual destination of new 
characters.  Which means that data prepared using fonts and input 
methods based on reserved characters might well need to be revised after 
the fact.
