RE: Property error for U+2118?

The Weierstrass symbol U+2118 isn't a capital letter in spite of its name,
nor is it really an alphabet character. It's sort of a stylized mixture of a
rho and a lower-case script p. However in view of the principle that
character names never change, even if incorrect, this symbol remains the
SCRIPT CAPITAL P. Fortunately at least its category could be corrected.

Is this an error or intentional change? I noticed that all other "SCRIPT
CAPITAL *" character values are in the "Lu" category. However, this
particular character has changed to "So" in the 3.0, 3.0.1, and 3.1 db.
Why? Why not the other SCRIPT CAPITAL * char values too?
