Not all normative properties are immutable. A normative property is
simply one which you have to get right if you claim conformance to
that part of Unicode: you cannot make PLUS SIGN a letter. Immutable
properties are those which Unicode guarantees will never change; they
are a subset of the normative properties.

They will conform to previous versions but not to newer versions.
