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
