Ezio Melotti added the comment:

I think it's OK to remove the sentence.

Converting a surrogate pair to a non-BMP char is something that works only while decoding a UTF-16 byte sequence.  Surrogates are invalid in UTF-8/32, and while dealing with Unicode strings, surrogates have no special meaning and are no different from any other codepoint, whether they are lone or paired.
