Is there a way to visually browse/explore the Unicode symbols
available in GNU Emacs (CVS) either globally or locally defined by a
specific/current font? Compare list-colors-display().

Yes. Open utf8.txt from the Kermit distribution. When you're using
only fonts (as opposed to fontsets) then you'll see, what this font
can offer for you.

How exactly do I do this: »using only fonts (as opposed to fontsets)«?
As far as I can see I am always using a fontset.

I don't know for sure. Maybe it works to select a certain font from the fonts menu (S-mouse-1).

To see how a specific font renders all characters, dolist the characters
defined in the the unicode standard (/admin/unidata/UnicodeData.txt in
the emacs sources).

How do *you* see these? The file is just a description of Unicode characters in US-ASCII ... The same is true for the file unidata.txt in the same directory. Both files can be helpful when customising what to show on a C-u C-x = on some character.
