The two features aren't really connected in any meaningful way, except
 weakly by metaphor.  Emoji switching is changing the entire glyph 
used to render the codepoint; multicolor fonts just let you specify 
the color palette directly.

In particular, rendering a multicolor font with monochrome *is the 
default* - if you don't invoke the `font-palette` property, all the 
palette colors default to `currentcolor`.

Since the OP was about emoji transformation, let's stick with that 
topic. You can split off a separate font palette discussion to another
