When you use the online feedback form your feedback will be officially
noted. You may not get a response, but it will be noted. The same does
not apply to postings on the Unicode list. (See for example I am
responding but I am not a Unicode official so there is no guarantee
that it is noted for the record.)

Moving Tirhuta is a good idea.

Actually the SMP Brahmic script allocations, especially for old
epigraphical scripts like Chola, Box Headed etc are highly tentative
except for Grantha which is 99.9% confirmed so it is not possible to
predict that they will *not* be used.
