Not really.  It merely suggests that individuals allocate characters from
the bottom of the space upwards, and corporations allocate from the top
of the space downwards.  The ConScript Unicode Registry, which is probably
the largest (in code points) user of the PUA, allocates mostly from the 
bottom upwards, but Klingon had already been allocated by the Linux
people from the top downwards, and we left that alone.
