I hope not! :) And neither does the WG. I'm concerned about any appearance we
might, if only because we do at the moment. Vague explanations about publishers
needing this to create content in the next six months, followed  by chatter of
'versioning' or 'deprecation' did little to dispel the perception on my end that
we might be setting some expectations. I think there is no better way to indicate
there is no divergence than referring to the Unicode spec.

Sure, whatever it takes to allow interested parties to generate the proper intended
data is fine.
