http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/#C073 has "Publicly interchanged content
SHOULD NOT use codepoints in the private use area." Reference to and
use of are equivalent concepts here. You might well argue that SHOULD
NOT is not MUST NOT, conformance checkers are nevertheless going to
point out violations of the SHOULD NOT requirement and as you can easily
from e.g. the www-validator-css mailing list, people think there is
something wrong with the content if conformance checkers point out there
might be something wrong with the content.
