I'm not sure if you understand the feature being requested. This is not
a font that specifies a foreground and background color per character,
it is a font that defines a character as a full-color graphic image
(e.g. the US flag in red, white, and blue with shadows and highlights,
though flags specifically are ligatures of two characters)

The variation selectors are specifically to replace the "skin color"
(typically yellow by default on the fonts that support them) with a
selected natural human skin color. I think they're actually implemented
by selecting another graphic entirely, since some implementations also
have different hair colors.
