The final sentence on that (badly spelled) page is
"So humans can use Marain to confuse their fellows, too."
As described in that page, Marain is open-ended. It is explicitly
stated that you could have a grid a million on a side, which is to
say 2**(10**12) "characters". This seems to disqualify it for
inclusion in a 31-bit (10646) or 21-bit (Unicode) code.
On the other hand, Unicode _could_ be mapped into Marain.
Either way, write up a proposal and see what happens.
