Such things (in this case, the suggestion that
U+0486 have a property change Script=Cyrillic --> Script=Inherited)
only happen if a specific proposal to do so is prepared
and tabled for the UTC, along with a request for an agenda
item to discuss and decide upon it.
Given that Unicode 5.1 is in process now (see the beta
review announcement on the site), there is only *one*
UTC meeting available where such a change could be
decided on -- the one at the beginning of February next
year -- for it to have any chance to appear in Unicode 5.1.
And since this is proposing a property change for an
existing character that has long had the property it
has, simply providing beta review feedback (which focusses
more on the properties for the newly added characters)
wouldn't be enough.
Making suggestions on the firstname.lastname@example.org list doesn't
actually accomplish any change in the standard, unless
it is followed up formally with the UTC.
