>From a mail exchange with Mark Davis on the topic:

[Soon] "there will be a publicly available stability provision for all of the
property aliases and property value aliases on

    * http://unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/PropertyValueAliases.txt
    * http://unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/PropertyAliases.txt 

with the exception of Contributory properties listed on
<http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/UCD.html#Properties>. This is not
completely final yet, since the exact wording has to be formulated by the
editorial committee, and it actually requires approval by the officers, but I
don't anticipate any problems.

So that will include block names. Note that that the set of characters having a
given property or property value may change (subject to the stability
policies). What the above means is that the identifiers will always remain
valid, so \p{script=Greek} or equivalent syntax will remain valid. That should
address your concerns.

Mark"
