That is correct. I should have made clear that I was referring to the 
specification for QID emoji rather than QID emoji. How quite to express 
precisely and concisely the formal acceptance of the specification by 
Unicode Inc. to become a published Unicode Inc. document giving the 
go-ahead for implementation by  anyone (not just software vendors) is 
somewhat difficult without using the word 'implement'.

I put forward on Friday 8 November 2019 a suggestion that might help 
towards solving the problem.
