Our proposed characters can be read in http://www.unicode.org/alloc/Pipeline.html But UTC not accepted/published our new character in unicode standard. So, we need to aware those issues in any kind of new implementation. We are worrying about transcoding, other standards issues and reinvent process in that area.
