I believe that's by design, following...

"C063  [S]  A generic reference to the Unicode Standard MUST be made if
it is desired that characters allocated after a specification is
published are usable with that specification".
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/#C063

I suppose we need a test case that uses a codepoint that isn't currently
allocated in Unicode 4.0.

Any takers? Steve? EricP?
