Unicode hasn't been doing very much but has been observing what's going on
in WG2. I reviewed the earlier Chinese proposals
and Mao Yonggang of Chinese Standards tells us to expect a Chinese response
soon. I don't know what the UTC position is. Currently there is a large
proposal from China and a smaller modification of that proposal by me, and
the Yi experts in China have not responded to that yet.
