  [5 new] Provide ISO/IEC power symbols

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

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.
