Jony, you obviously misunderstand the situation. If the UTC changes the
properties of characters, in the database, those new properties are
AUTOMATICALLY picked up by future versions of much software, which
simply reads the Unicode character database. No conscious decision by
vendors required, no money involved. Of course there is no guarantee
that any particular software will do this, or when, but I understand
that a lot of software does this.
