Negative/Negation Sign

The appearance of a symbol in some device does not really mean something
that should be relevant to Unicode. It is not an element of text but a
graphic symbol in a particular technical environment.

It is not even clear which symbol you are referring to. In any case. if you
wanted to suggest that some symbol be encoded as a Unicode character, you
would need to demonstrate its use in texts (or, stretching a lot, the need
for using it in texts) and its essence as a separate character rather than
a typographic or stylistic variant of an existing character.
