I'm not questioning the default, I'm trying to understand a feature and it's 
default setting. Apologies if that takes time.

I know that. You're not really answering the above question. When people expect 
a character to be returned, they expect a character and not a code point.

How useful is:

(decode-char 'emacs 345)
345 (#o531, #x159)


I already know that the code point is 345.

Maybe not "look for a suitable font" but set a default font for that action. 
There is a finite number of standard fonts on systems that support emacs.
