I think that because the proposed characters have no unusual properties involving connecting, contextual shaping, directionality, etc., it should be apparent that they will "work" without the need to make a font generally available. If UTC approves them, they may ask you for the font at that time and you can offer it to them.

If you do feel the need to distribute the font generally, I agree with James that the characters should be placed in the PUA and not at your proposed code points, at least not until they have been approved and preferably not until a Unicode version containing them is released.
