Some Unicode characters not saving in customizer

If you use upcoming Emojis (Like U+1F90D White Heart - ), WordPress is unable to save the change.
Works at some places, doesn't work at other places.

In the customizer, i can use the Emoji for the site title and description without any problems.
If i instead try to use the emoji for a widget title the preview works, but saving does not.

There is no error message, all other things i changed will be saved, just the affected field keeps it old value.

Workaround: In areas where i am allowed to insert HTML, i can just write &#1F90D; to use the emoji.

I think this needs some attention.
Copying ans pasting an emoji from a website, or using a emoji keyboard breaks UX, as a widget is just not saved, and previous content is shown.

User would need a notification that the emoji throws an error, or the emoji should be converted to the HMTL notation like &#1F90D; automatically.

Are there any other places that this issue occurs in the customizer, besides widgets?

Has anyone tested for this issue with the new (5.8) block-based widget editor yet?
