That's because formally the ISO control codes do not have one fixed,
normative meaning; implementers may or may not follow ISO 6429. That is why
these don't have names in ISO 10646 and in Unicode.
Of course, a few control codes (e.g., U+000A) are very widely used, and
have Unicode properties according to that use. (e.g., White_Space)
