Yes, UPA is covered.  Its specific characters are mostly in the Phonetic
Extensions block, 1D00-1D7F.

The native charset of SMS messages supports English, French, mainland
Scandinavian languages, German, Italian, Spanish with no accents, and
GREEK SHOUTING.  Everything else has to be Unicode, which means you get
only 70 16-bit characters in a text instead of 160 7-bit characters.
