[any typist-readable string] => [character reference]
mappings would be great. That would imply that user may provide nxml
with arbitray maps.

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

(like when James uses <point/> in the source doc for nxml?)
