Comment (by XgoikenX):

 > In the case of Firefox, we do only replace the emoji that don't render
 correctly - Firefox doesn't support flag emoji, so we only replace the
 flag emoji characters.

 >  There's no such thing as "original" emoji. Emoji vary by the platform
 they're being displayed on, not by the platform they were typed on. The
 important part is that they convey the same emotion.

 [[Image(http://bradschetl.org/example.png)]] Maybe an example helps (both
 viewed in FF). Upper part is after 4.2 and below is before 4.2 / after
 adjusting filters. I hope this illustrates that replacement should at the
 very least respect the color choice (black in my case).

 One more argument: current practice is a privacy concern for users,
 because it shares requests with an unexpected third party.
