No, because it's not the way context does things (or at least I never 
needed it so I never bothered to look into writing it). I would probably 
look into it when there was demand for some feature not supported yet. 
Even then I'd probably not rely interpreting unicode characters but on 
proper tagging because one never knows what the intended use/rendering 
of some character at some point it.
