For what it is worth, I concur with Michael's answers

And there is no *Unicode* beta page for Unicode 5.2 as yet.
That will not appear until sometime after the conclusion
of the final ballot resolution for Amendment 6 -- presumably
sometime in late spring of 2009.

Nor do I on this matter. But I agree that the additional characters
under ballot for Aiton and Phake in no way disturb the
overall model for Myanmar as represented in Unicode 5.1,
and I see no reason to stop localization development based
on Unicode 5.1 at this point simply because a few more
characters are under consideration and because someone is
developing font(s) to support them.
