Bug Description

As of Unicode 9.0, the following standard symbols for power management are available:

Power U+23FB ⏻
Toggle Power U+23FC ⏼
Power On U+23FD ⏽
Power Off U+2B58 ⭘
Sleep Mode U+23FE ⏾

It would be useful to have these symbols in Ubuntu, given their applications in UI widgets, such as GtkSwitch, which currently rely on other less-than-suitable symbols to translate the English words “on” and “off” in languages where their equivalents are too long.

Ah yes, those would be great to have as glyphs!
