`C-x 8 RET M-<DOWN>' takes a long time to load and display.  All the UTF8
characters get displayed in a long list with M-<DOWN> and M-<UP> moving
a character at a time.  

My interest is in displaying a page (e.g. a table) at a time with just the
UTF8 characters of a particular set.  And shifting one set at a time.

To have an idea, consider the case if `C-x 8 RET M-<DOWN>' shows the first
character set (e.g. Arrows).  Then pressing "M-<DOWN>" again shows the next 
character set (e.g. Math Operators), and so on.  Makes browsing the UTF8 
characters much faster and you are moving by Character Set rather them by
Character Glyph.
