That would work for me.  Note that unlike the list you linked the trailing ';'
should be included where necessary in the list of HTML5 references (the list at
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html includes both
references with and without the ';').
I also noticed that in your list the "DotDot" entry (and a few others) is
equivalent to " \u20DC" (with a leading space), whereas the entry in the HTML5
list only mentions U+020DC (without mentioning the leading space).  This is a
combining character, so the reason for the extra space might be to prevent it
to combine with the previous character.  I don't know if this should be the
same for the HTML5 list too though.
