PDFTeX can only use 256 glyph per font, so I don't see how your super
huge font would work any way. Also, *TeX supports a concept called
virtual fonts so you can combine several physical fonts without
modifying them, though the 265 glyph limit still applies (unless you are
using a modern TeX implementation like LuaTeX).
