It should be possible, yes.  Define a new face, and make that face use
a font that can display sequences like U+24C2 U+FE0E.  Then put a
'face' text property whose value is that face you defined, on the text
containing such a sequence.  This should force Emacs to use the font
you specified for that stretch of text, regardless of the fontset and
the default font.

Given that we don't really see why sequences with U+FE0E are needed,
perhaps requiring Lisp programs which do want to display such
sequences to use a special face is not such a big deal?

OK, I see it now, thanks.
