Inclusion of additional characters, in particular genuinely new
(in the sense that they are not just the same as something already
in) but well established math symbols, in not a problem at all
(except for time, which is spent mainly on the ISO side).
There many ongoing additions, in particular scripts not yet
covered, historical scripts, and CJK ideographs.

Of course, moving things around is a completely different issue,
to be avoided at all cost.
