While valid, the SSAC basically concluded we should not be using them: https://features.icann.org/ssac-advisory-use-emoji-domain-name

So it would be very hard at the moment to push for any kind of change in spam filters. There is ongoing discussion in terms of acceptable characters and such, but that seems to be going nowhere fast.
