I don't have any specific information regarding any proposals
for extending the UCA syllabics. But...

The ROK National Body has indicated interest in the context
of the WG2 meetings in bringing in a proposal for adding
more jamo characters. Given the approximate number of jamos
they have been talking about -- which would be intended for
representation of Old Hangul choseong, jungseong, and jongseong --
the Roadmap additions are simply preliminary allocations of
a matching number of columns.
It remains to be seen whether an actual proposal will be
forthcoming from the ROK NB -- at which time it would become
a WG2 document and get a link from these entries in the Roadmap.
