    Not right now. However, Tifinagh was just accepted by UTC and WG2, and has
    been moved out of that slot, so that line 08 *will* be all right to left,
    and Tifinagh will (likely) be encoded up at U+2D30. Some other stuff is
    also moving around. The roadmap will soon be updated to reflect the
    movement of Tifinagh, etc.

    No. Blocks are created and populated as proposals are accepted. The
    roadmap is just a guide.

    There is no need to request any change to it.

    Then you should write a proposal for them.
