The strict conjecture still holds, of course, but I'd be inclined
to agree with Andrew West now and to state, instead:
Whistler's Revised Strict Conjecture: Other than Plane 14
hazmat disposal, no characters will ever be encoded beyond Plane 3.
This because the IRG and other Han enthusiasts have determined
that Oracle Bone script (Jaiguwen), Bronze script (Jinwen),
and Small Seal script (Xiao Zhuan) need to be disjointly
encoded and have prevailed upon WG2 to approve the Tertiary
Ideographic Plane to roadmap their allocations. (OT comments
about Han fossils discovered on the Tertiary planes
of China are invited.)
I'm not expecting even initial proposals for the Tertiary
Ideographic Plane to show up for some time yet, however.
