They are already maintained correctly. Whether the block or the
characters have the word BENGALI in their names is not relevant.

You will never find an international standard, or standards
organization, or government, that leaves "no room for any grievances."
People will always find something to complain about.

But at least in this case, there is no technical problem to be solved.
There is a script that happens to be called "Bengali" which is commonly
used to write both the Bengali language and the Assamese language (and
others). The script is encoded in Unicode such that it can be used to
write both languages in their entirety. No evidence has been presented
of any technical problems with the existing encoding of this script.
That is all that matters here.
