Yeah... we can have a debate about this. Some of the control characters have pretty varied applications/semantics. In terms of the character/glyph model, which is what we base all this stuff on to a degree, it's somewhat less clear whether these should really be a character or not. Seems to me that Unicode, while making a valiant effort, is also not immune to the pragmatic issues of current use and grandfathering existing data.
