Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] Consider specifying UA should not perform system fallback for Unicode PUA

Unicode has policies against encoding corporate logos (for good reason). Even 🍏 + VS15 would violate this policy.

How does the browser know which font is the one which contains the PUA characters? For example, someone’s font family list may first contain a Chinese font and then an English font, with the English font containing the PUA character (and the Chinese font containing no PUA characters at all). This is a situation where Web content currently relies on font fallback for PUA characters. (Also the Apple logo, as I mentioned above.)
