Replacing certain characters with images is easy, and can be done in
Emacs already; you just need to code that explicitly in Lisp.  But
having this done automatically by the display engine whenever it sees
a certain codepoint is something else entirely.

IOW, the ability to display today images instead of some text is not
something that can evolve into automatic support for these characters
on the display engine level.
