      I agree, provision for such

      [any typist-readable string] => [character reference]

      mappings would be great. That would imply that user may provide nxml
      with arbitray maps.

      Me too.

      Agreed again. But since code/names may be unconveniently long, I'd
      rather see a toggle for missing glyphs that either displays a one
      character long default glyph or the whole code+unicode name.

      Would it be bad to represent those unicode names as empty elements
      like <uni:zero-width-no-break-space code="65279" type="sepchar"/>. By
      the way isn't that a favorite way to represent user-defined entities
      (like when James uses <point/> in the source doc for nxml?)
