Yes.

The Unicode Supplementary Multilingual Planes (SMPs) are used for rare but 
still current East Asian characters (which means that some of your Chinese 
users may not be able to write their names without it), also some 
mathematics symbols (okay, that's *slightly* esoteric), as well as emoji.

None of those uses are critical (unless you have a lot of Chinese users) but 
supporting the SMPs should not be considered optional.
