It provides East Asian Width. It's unfortunate that despite emoji
arising from the domain of East Asian typography, East Asian Width
doesn't work well for later emoji additions. But defining some kind of
Extended East Asian Width would indeed be something one would expect
the Unicode Consortium to define instead of something that the C++
committee should define.
