By definition, no Unicode code point can ever have an ordinal value greater than
0x10FFFF = 1114111.

So I don't know what you're talking about, but it isn't Unicode. If you want to
invent your own text standard to compete with Unicode, well, good luck getting
people behind it. Especially since it seems to offer nothing but a vast
increase in complexity and memory usage for no apparent benefit that I can see.
