Actually not. In the interests of sanity I didn't give the full
specification statement, which excludes anything in XIDC, emojis, or
pictographics. From the UAX31 perspective those are sanity conditions, and
I think they would be prudent for Swift as well.

You can still put the horns on somebody, but you have to use a conventional
identifier.... :-)
