not immediately - vile's only displaying 16-bit, no-combining-characters.
It doesn't lose the bits...

The characters you point out are >16-bits, of course.

When I implemented that, I had in mind that there might be some need to
integrate the wide(r) character type with the buffer content.  I don't
recall that happening (and don't see it in a quick check of the source).

That's something I might work on after 9.8t (which will be mostly just
catch-up, tidying up some work I started to update the Visual Studio
ports).  At the moment I'm most of the way done with the same thing
for lynx (one regression to fix, one feature to add).
