It might be most productive for people concerned with this issue to be
the charts currently in preparation for Version 6.1.0 of the Unicode
Standard, rather than
the already published charts from last year. Please see, for example:

For information on how to provide feedback on these charts (or regarding
aspects of the Version 6.1.0 of Unicode currently in beta review),
please see:

Also, please read the Unicode Character Encoding Stability Policy carefully:

That page spells out the "rules of the road", as it were, by listing

the *cannot* be changed, because of their potential impact on the
stability of
the standard as a whole.
