yes, that is true but we do have them in some encodings, eg OMS OML ...
and those can still be used

perhaps. also perhaps MS1/2 might have free slots in the end or
perhaps once can have a final misc encoding for odd symbols. but the
point is that those symbols are not at all likely to be implemented by
any other font than the existing cm series in which case you could
still use the original encodings to get at them
