Because they are maintained as part of an independent standard now (UTS 
#51), which is still on track to have a faster turnaround -- and hence 
faster data updates -- not synched with the annual versions of the 
Unicode Standard. Hence they cannot be formally a part of the UCD -- 
unless the entire Unicode Standard were going to be churned on a faster 
cycle as well.

No. Not unless and until they become formally part of the UCD.
