    To paraphrase my answer. The principle is, as long as a character has
    received final approval for publication in an amendment for 10646
    there's nothing to prevent its appearance in print in Unicode. In other
    words, the two organizations synchronize the contents, but not the
    precise publication dates of their respective standards.
