Well the difference matters. Can we render any code point, or do we
only render Unicode scalar values (code points minus lone surrogates).
I'm kinda hoping the latter, but I'm pretty sure in Gecko at least
it's the former. Whether unicode-range should support lone surrogates
might be separate from that I suppose.
