212A;KELVIN SIGN;Lu;0;L;004B;;;;N;DEGREES KELVIN;;;006B;
that looks wrong to me. Maybe it should look like this:
212A;KELVIN SIGN;Lu;0;L;<compat> 004B;;;;N;DEGREES KELVIN;;;006B;

http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/UCD.html tells me differently:
The tags supplied with certain decomposition mappings generally
indicate formatting information. Where no such tag is given, the
mapping is canonical. Conversely, the presence of a formatting tag
also indicates that the mapping is a compatibility mapping and not a
canonical mapping. In the absence of other formatting information in
a compatibility mapping, the tag is used to distinguish it from
In some instances a canonical mapping or a compatibility mapping may
consist of a single character. For a canonical mapping, this
indicates that the character is a canonical equivalent of another
single character. For a compatibility mapping, this indicates that
the character is a compatibility equivalent of another single
character. The compatibility formatting tags used are:
A font variant (e.g. a blackletter form).
A no-break version of a space or hyphen.
An initial presentation form (Arabic).
A medial presentation form (Arabic).
A final presentation form (Arabic).
An isolated presentation form (Arabic).
An encircled form.
A superscript form.
A subscript form.
A vertical layout presentation form.
A wide (or zenkaku) compatibility character.
A narrow (or hankaku) compatibility character.
A small variant form (CNS compatibility).
A CJK squared font variant.
A vulgar fraction form.
Otherwise unspecified compatibility character.
