If Unicode character classification is a punctuation class (Pc, Pd, Ps, Pe, Pi, Pf, Po - http://www.unicode.org/public/unidata/ucd.html#general_category_values) most items would be covered. 

Po - INTERROBANG, BULLET, etc.

The most important point Kevin makes on the above web page is that the 
decision should be left to the designer. CSS should offer mechanisms for 
all kinds of hanging punctuation. Left edge and right edge hanging 
punctuation. For quotation marks, brackets, and whatnot.
