Yes, yes and yes.

But Deseret and the CJK Ideograph Extension B are both in the "Extended
Planes" (codes > 0xFFFF), and were added in version 3.1.
(I.e. they're already old stuff now :-)

What I was asking about are the new characters that will be added in the
"Basic Multilingual Plane" (codes <= 0xFFFF) with version 3.2.
(I.e. asking anticipations about the cool new stuff :-)
