    Codepoints are subject to revision until publication.

    Actually, there's a stage in the ISO process after which the only
    way a codepoint could change would be rejection of the entire amendment,
    which is much, much less likely than changes during committee deliberation
    and earlier ballot stages.

    That period of nearly approved additions may overlap the beta period
    for a Unicode version, but for 4.1 we are not nearly there yet.

    So, for simplicity, it's just easiest to stick with 'nothing's guaranteed
    until published'.


    PS: For details on the ISO stages see the section on our website on
    submitting proposals.
