A coworker and I had -just- been discussing a nearly identical idea.  I 
mentioned it to Bron, who mentioned this draft to me.

I just had two things I thought might be worth chiming in on:

First:  This one is a bit tedious, but since I was going to post here anyway:  
the definition of emoji should refer to emoji characters *and sequences*, lest 
it omit lots of non-single-character emoji.  (Even the humble red heart is more 
than one character.)

The other thought was about the question of what goes in the body.  
Specifically, we discussed a means to distinguish "Look, I just want to send 👍🏽 
and nothing else" from "I would like to write a treatise on the ways in which I 
agree, but if you are not prepared to bask in the glory of my prose, I guess 
you can summarize it as 👍🏽".  This would allow (for example) a means to count 
up reactions of a type, even when there's content, and would also allow user 
agents to avoid drawing whole messages when the content was trivial.  Something 
like "Header-Contains-Whole-Message: yes" would sum that up, meaning "reaction 
if provided, otherwise subject".  It's out of scope for this draft as written, 
but I think multiplies the draft's value.
