Why not? it will at least tell the user the font doesn't support
that.  More importantly, it will allow the user to choose a sequence
even if his/her Emacs cannot display it, because those of the
addressees (assuming this is in an email message, for example) could.
And as a nice bonus, it makes the code much faster.

So I'd say it's a net win.  But if you are still unconvinced, how
about a user option to control whether undisplay-able emoji sequences
are filtered out?
