It looks like they are trying to re-invent the wheel, and make SMuFL the new standard. Good luck with that.
The thing is, there isn't a standard format for music fonts. It would be a good thing if there were. Steinberg is clearly doing two things here:
1: Create a new font to use with the new notation program.
2: Try to define a standard for musical characters in a Unicode font in addition to the 220 characters already specified in Unicode under "Musical Notation".
Creating a new font is to be expected when they are working on a brand new notation program. As to defining a standard for Unicode, I'm all for it, but it would be better if the creators of the major notation programs could work together.
According to the SMuFL site, Michael Good of MakeMusic is one of the contributors to this project. So are people involved with Lillypond, it seems. Since Sibelius likely is out of the picture, it's likely no one from Avid is involved, but this certainly seems like a collaborative effort on Steinberg's part.
