Correct. IETF, not W3C.

At present, no. However, there is an understanding that sooner or
later, these RFCs will have to be updated to allow characters from
later Unicode versions. Any specific cases of actual needs for doing
this would be appreciated; it is much easier to push something forward
based on actual needs than based on "we'll have to do this eventually".
