No. Hieroglyphs are going to Plane 1, so they won't be in Unicode 3.0.
Everything on http://www.unicode.org/unicode/alloc/Pipeline.html
in the section "Characters and Scripts Accepted for Unicode"
*that is encoded in Plane 0* will be in Unicode 3.0 for a total
of 10311 new characters (modulo arithmetic errors).
This is IMHO, not official.
