Glyphs can already be named by entering their character as the name of the Illustrator object, and they can be named by entering their unicode name. For example, the Norwegian way of saying “Eueueuh” could be named either “ø” or “U+00F8" Great! Works like a charm.
I’m using Python on the glyphs in the Illustrator file in combination with some Adobe scripts for dealing with color fonts. For me, it would be very useful if I could name the object “oslash”, which is the “AGL-NF” name. (Adobe Glyph List for New Fonts). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Glyph_List.
I can imagine this could also be interesting for others who let Python loose on their fonts. It would help in automation outside of Illustrator.
