Yes, it is sufficient, provided there is enough space in the font (only 256 
glyphs can be included).

This is how you can check that there haven't been problems with space in 
the fonts (after you compile the package):

grep 'no space in the font' Fonts/*.log

If you see no such warnings, then everything is ok.  I've tried this myself 
and it seems there is enough space in the fonts for these three additional 
symbols.  So, go ahead and add them!

The glyphs come from the fonts in the directory Fonts/bdf.  This particular 
warning means that no suitable source font includes this glyph, so it has 
been impossible to support it in the generated console font.
