taco emoji The Unicode Consortium has accepted 37 new emoji characters 
as /candidates /for Unicode 8.0, scheduled for mid-2015. These are 
candidates—not yet finalized—so some may not appear in the release.

There are many possible emoji that could be added, but releases need to 
be restricted to a manageable number. Many other emoji characters, such 
as other food items and symbols of religious significance, are still 
being assessed, and could appear in a future release of the Unicode 
Standard. Feedback can be sent via the reporting form 
<http://www.unicode.org/reporting.html>.

============
note from khw.  The Buddha emoji is controversial as to whether it 
should go in without further review, as some cultures may find 
representations of the Buddha sacrilegious
