When I mentioned the "current default", I was referring to the characters what Unicode calls ["default emoji presentation characters"](http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/index.html#Emoji_Characters). 

The only browser/OS combinations I tried that applied emoji-style to Unicode snowman (U+2603, a "default text presentation character" in the [Unicode emoji data](http://unicode.org/Public/emoji/4.0/emoji-data.txt)), in the absence of a variation selector codepoint, was Mobile Safari 10. Mobile Safari 9 uses text presentation.  Given that this is contrary to Unicode recommendations, I think it's safe to call that a bug in that one browser, and not be worried about maintaining compatibility with something that isn't web-compatible anyway.
