As for all the ISO standards and Amendments to the standards, the
final, published, authoritative texts are not available online, but
have to be ordered from ISO or from a national standards body such as
ANSI. See for the ISO catalogue.

In some instances, you can still get to the ballotted documents for an
FPDAM on the SC2 document site:
but SC2 N2965 (FDAM for Amendment 11, Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics)
and SC2 N2967 (FDAM for Amendment 12, Cherokee) don't seem to be online there.
The FPDAM's for those two amendments are SC2 N2806 and SC2 N2807, and are
also not online. Those predated the point at which the SC2 secretariat
started getting systematic about having all such documents available

As to the encoding points and character names, you can consider
UnicodeData-3.0.0.beta.txt authoritative at this point. That is exactly
what both the Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC 10646-1:2000 (the second edition)
are going to publish.
