Sorry, I forgot to comment about this. I actually happened to read this on
the wikipedia page:

    The original specification covered numbers up to 31 bits (the original
    limit of the Universal Character Set). In November 2003 UTF-8 was
    restricted by RFC 3629 to end at U+10FFFF, in order to match the
    constraints of the UTF-16 character encoding. This removed all 5- and
    6-byte sequences, and about half of the 4-byte sequences.
