Thank you for the clarification. This limitation is understandable since
Mathematica needs to map various symbols to the nonstandard codepoints in
the Mathematica fonts. But it also halts basically any attempt at custom

It seems the only interim solution is to modify the Mathematica fonts.
Anyone have a mapping from the nonstandard Mathematica glyph codepoints to
the Unicode codepoints?
