Stretchy equal sign for commutative diagrams

Hi all,

We are implementing the AMScd extension in MathJax:

and one horizontal stretchy operator that is needed is the character for 
two parallel horizontal bars. We use the equal sign "=" and it seems 
that LaTeXML does the same.

I'm wondering if others have considered this operator and whether they 
used a different Unicode code point for that. The equal sign is not 
stretchy by default (that makes sense) and I don't see constructions in 
the Open Type Math table of e.g. the STIX fonts. This is not available 
in Gecko either. That's probably not hard to implement (one could repeat 
the equal sign or use the middle glyphs available for the "Double Right 
Arrow"), but I just want to coordinate with other projects and keep 
things consistent.
