Yes, it does contain possibly ambiguous characters; but if there's room for multiocular O, Ogham, Byzantine music symbols, and the as-yet undeciphered Phaistos Disc, there's room and reason to put the Voynich manuscript in Unicode.


(Also, my bad: Byzantine music notation is still occasionally used in Orthodox churches that include pre-19th century chant hymns in their worship. But going out on a branch here, there's probably a similar or larger user base for Voynich and hoaxology researchers.)
