Shouldn't the standardization institutions of the German-speaking countries first take care of that problem and then see that it's introduced into Unicode? If there's a problem, than those standardization bodies (like DIN) should be the ones who drive it.
Otherwise it's like saying "hey guys, here you have an upper-case ß, not sure whether you actually need it, but please now change all your computer keyboards, and, sorry, but 8859-1 doesn't work any more for your language!" ;-)
