I know that. The division of labour is this: it's up to the Unicode
consortium to provide a code point for a character. Then it's up to font
foundries to provide a character shape for that character/glyph in roman
and italic fonts. Again, the same way as with schwa, open o, etc:
Unicode provides the unicode point, font foundries the character shapes
