It doesn't do anything. I includes only BMP (with private area) which
if I understand it correctly only is 0000 - ffff.

But I know nothing about this. Which other pars are most important? On
wikipedia I see they divide it in 8 ranges (with one big unassigned
range). It looks like this could perhaps be handled in some way by for
example colors.
