Strange to see that comment on an emacs-list!

I guess the same comment would have been made 50 years ago when C came out

[There are things called input-methods in particular tex-input method]¹

Yes, unicode has more mis-understandings than understanding (currently)
See for the plus for the minus

¹ I prefer X-based input methods; eg after
$ setxkbmap -layout "us,gr"  -option "grp:caps_toggle,grp_led:caps"

the CAPSLOCK becomes a 'greeklock' ie after pressing CAPSLOCK
