No, rather that they are not supported by the Mule IPA character set. The
extant UTF-8 support does preserve them on reading and writing, though
redisplay only succeeds if an appropriate font is specified and
available. As is also the case with the Mule IPA character set.

The Unicode characters needed for Kirshenbaum and X-SAMPA support but that
aren’t in the Mule-IPA character set are listed below. I don’t see any
advantage to encoding the file in ISO-2022-7 with the Mule IPA characters as
the Mule IPA characters, and not as the corresponding characters in Unicode,
while encoding the rest using the mule-unicode-* sets, since anyone serious
about dealing with them will have to support the Unicode characters anyway.

(Note that I take the Unicode mapping needed to generate the below from 
; I can’t easily find the mapping in the GNU Emacs source, so it may support
more code points than the below, though certainly not the complete 121 I
list, since it’s a single-dimension 96-character character set.)

When I was in the scouts, the leader told me to pitch a tent. I couldn't
find any pitch, so I used creosote.
