Correct. Since the online registry was rolled out in May, 2004 there
have been a number of script code additions, and a few name updates,
but no alpha code or numeric code has been changed or removed. And
the intent of the JAC is to keep it that way.

This is true for the others, but the text of ISO 15924 *is* posted
by the RA, at:
in English *and* in French.
