I remember a time when such hacks were common and reasonable, but is it not now past time where we can safely assume reasonable code point coverage in fonts?

I get that there are poor-quality fonts or those that were designed back in the 8-bit character days, but do you want to be using those in DocBook applications, anyway?

And if it is not yet time to pull all those hacks out, then when?
