Yes, I know them. I already mentioned these some time ago in a 
\usepackage{cmap} thread. AFAIR it was found then that no TeX version 
supports codes outside the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP).

Of course TeX, or to be more precise: the PDF creators should go the 
way to use glyphs from the Supplementary Multilingual Plane (SMP). 
Wouldn't this be the end of solutions based on intermediate PostScript? 
And those based on (simple) DVI too? Neither PS nor DVI have attributes 
to make a difference between text or math use ...
