Thanks for the suggestion. After reading your reply, I suspect this might be
issues of LibreOffice on Windows (or more precisely Windows with asian code
page configured for non-Unicode applications) but not on Linux.

I can insert the face as a special character, and both the characters
using the keyboard U+1Fxxx

I also have DejaVu Sans installed on my Windows. In Microsoft Word 2010, I
can insert the face as a special character (and paste them into Windows 7
notepad/wordpad). In LibreOffice, I am not given any glyphs from
this font beyond U+FFEF. I see a number of readable glyphs not in the
typeface of DejaVu Sans but resembles Chinese font outlines.

Besides, at first attempt, I can see some glyphs in the SMP plane from
DejaVU *Serif*, but after fiddling with the Special Characters dialog for
one minute or two, I am no longer able to see these glyphs in this font.

As for keyboard direct input, Windows appear to be somehow lagging behind,
allowing no non-zero plane code points.

So it appears the system recognises Unicode 6.3. The font recognises the
face but not the knife and fork and LibreOffice uses the two.  

In my case, and possible in Windows' case, the system recognises Unicode
6.3. The font recognises the face but not the knife and fork, but
LibreOffice uses neither of the two.

"雷聲 靐䨻": if you can see four Chinese characters instead of blobs or question marks than your 
browser/OS has a good support for Unicode and CJK characters! (P.S. the four chracters put together 
means "loud thunder")
