Always display emoji tags in item tree?

I love the new emoji display feature for colored tags! I plan to use it often.

In the past, there have been multiple requests for expanding the number of colored tags beyond 9 to allow more detailed visual labeling. My impression is that hasn’t happened because getting a set of >9 visually distinct colors is difficult.

However, with the emoji tags, I think creating distinct labels is now very doable. Rather than allowing more colored tags per se, I think it would be great to always display single emoji tags in the item tree, regardless of whether they are colored. This would be especially useful for things like 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣ for quality ratings, etc.

A related enhancement that would be really useful for me would be to display an emoji that is the first character of a tag, even if other text follows. That would allow using the same visual cue for a group of related tags that nevertheless should be distinct tags. A feature like this has also been requested multiple times over the years.
