Let me join the chorus of agreement with Brian here.

The most popular use case will forever be ASCII line of non-letter symbols.

Another way to think about codepoints is as conversion between UTF-32 and
UTF-16, or as general support for text in UTF-32 format, which is not
supported well within the JDK (and we probably should not do too much work
in this direction).
