It doesn't do the job, becuase it doesn't contain the characters

  > 000100  Ā ā Ă ă Ą ą Ć ć Ĉ ĉ Ċ ċ Č č Ď ď Đ đ Ē ē Ĕ ĕ Ė ė Ę ę Ě ě Ĝ ĝ Ğ ğ

That's what I have in mind.  Perhaps we should have a command that
generates it.

However, in addition to these lines of characters, it should have
other lines with the names of the scripts and the languages they
belong to, so you can search for those.

If you type RET on a character, it should visit
admin/unidata/UnicodeData.txt and move to the corresponding line.

Likewise, admin/unidata/UnicodeData.txt could have a special major
mode, so that typing RET on the line describing some character
switches to the all-of-unicode buffer and goes to the right character
in it.
