Comment (by helen):

 I see Unicode support as the majority feature, with the emoji support
 being WP-style icing (not unimportant, but more of a bonus). Emoji-
 specific support is about making sure images show up wherever native emoji
 don't. The underlying Unicode character support includes many more
 characters than emoji, which is what we are now better supporting in terms
 of saving. What are we telling people for the headline - hooray, we don't
 truncate your post when you enter emoji or  anymore, so you should enter
 lots of them and we promise we won't show any ugly boxes? Are we doing
 ourselves a disservice by continuing to beat the "emoji support" drum,
 when it's more than that?
