Any code between 0x110000 and 0x3FFF7F are valid as
character.  Some of them correspond to a certain character
set, some are not.  For the latter, only utf-emacs can
encode, and they can't be displayed with any font.  But
still they are valid as characters.  For instance, you can
set any syntax/category/char-code-property to them.
