It's not enough to know their names and codepoints.  Egyptian
hieroglyphs have unique shaping requirements, which needed appropriate
character composition rules to be written.  We have those as well,
though.  It's the fonts to support this shaping that are missing.
Which is to say our composition rules were not really tested well, so
they could include bugs.
