That means they are "proposed" to remain unaltered, and / or that actual
proposed changes might still be in the works.

In either case, if you have an issue with the spec as written, now would
be a good time to provide input that can lead to an improvement,
correction or extension of the document and / or the corresponding data

 From watching this process over the years, request for incompatible
changes that aren't a correction of out and out errors will have a tough
time in committee. Editorial clarifications usually have the best
success at acceptance, as well as any issues related to improving the
handling of newly encoded characters. Anything else will be in-between,
subject to some cost-benefit analysis by the UTC, weighing the putative
benefits of a change to the cost of not only making it in the documents,
but also to existing implementations.
