Sounds simple enough (and useful) to me, and I'm not sure I agree
with e-letter's objection above,
Instead of the current theoretical maximum of 2000 page to search for
a rarely used glyph, whose position is known, you'd have to search
through 25000 pages for a glyph whose position is both unknown, and
unknowable to all, except the creator of the font palette.
I really have no idea what you are talking about here...
How does 2000 or 25000 come into it at all? We're simply talking about
being able to filter the list by custom selections, be that their 20-40
most used, "Engineering" symbols, or whatever.

They are talking about Unicode fonts.  They could have 2 to 10 thousand
glyphs, depending on which language glyphs are supported.

What you are asking may be in the "basic" special character sets in
Basic Latin, Latin-1, Latin Extended A and B, among other glyph sets in
a "well rounded" font.  There may be 100 to 500 glyphs in those sets in
your "popular" fonts that are used.  The sets do have names that are
defined by the "font standards", but I never remember the names or what
goes where.
