Rest-api emoji what to do with that

https://api.github.com/emojis

Regarding the emojis
I would like to ask, what is the expected use case for the api consumer?
Are the images in the public domain?
Downloading the stuff, does not make much sense, does it.
The server itself, does not say much.

The documentation is indeed quite terse:
https://docs.github.com/en/rest/reference/emojis

My guess is that it’s for anyone writing a GitHub Markdown compatible app and who needs to know “will :foot: render as an emoji?”
