The beta period is for examining things that are proposed to be updated in
4.0.1. It isn't "open season" for proposing any kinds of changes. We are
specifically wanting feedback on the Unihan database, errata, and so forth,
as discussed on the Beta pages.
You can always propose changes, but whether or not the proposals can be
adopted depends very much on what you want to change. Please see the
Unicode policies page about encoding stability, and the Proposals page
about making proposals:
(You can't remove codepoints or move them around. You can request new
characters, if they can't be expressed as combinations of characters that
already exist. E.g., we don't add new conjuncts -- those are expressed by
combinations of characters, as defined in the text of the standard.)
Please see also:
for details of the Malayalam encoding and the encoding model.
