Unicode surrogates

The 2005/07/21 draft disallows surrogate code points, namely those between 
#xD800 and #xDFFF inclusive.  In Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 and later, the 
file system and registry use UTF-16LE for encoding names.  They allow bare 
surrogate code points.  For example, I can create a file called 
"\uD802.ss" in Windows.  How would I be able to open this file in Scheme 
with the given proposal?
