They could, but it would be best for vendors to publish their actual
mappings rather than others guessing them.

At this point, the Emoji vendor mappings are not very relevant any more
because Unicode has added many Emoji symbols that are not in the old vendor

In general, the biggest value of the Unicode mapping tables was for
cross-reference with existing standards when Unicode was being established.

I am not aware of anyone working on them. If there is one that you think
would be valuable to add or update, you can propose specific data.
