It was what I’ve had in mind when was talking about fixing the issue and it 
does not need to wait so long, at least I hope :)
Fetching un-mapped glyphs with Freetype is very easy. The problem is rather 
when it will be output to PDF. My thought here would be to "virtually" map 
these glyphs in PUA (following a vendor scheme or developping our own, it has 
to be discussed) so when char2CMap is called we just output the index of the 
glyph in the font and it should be transparent for all other modules AFAICT. 
It’s weak when you share documents but it can work (I’ve coded something like 
that once, have to find the diff back :/ ).
