I meant "CJK COMPATIBILITY IDEOGRAPH-nnnn", sorry for the confusion.

OK, thanks for clarifying. In looking into this, I noticed a curious ambiguity: 'C-x 8 RET B E D RET' inserts U+0BED (TAMIL DIGIT SEVEN), whereas it should insert U+1F6CF (BED). BED is currently the only Unicode name that consists entirely of hexadecimal digits. I installed the attached patch into master to fix the problem you mentioned, along with fixing this ambiguity and a couple of other related problems that I noticed.

Perhaps BED should be renamed, but that's not our job.
