Unicode *15*, in a few weeks.

Depending on the parser, you might see it getting confused about
multiple @missing lines, or getting incorrect property values for
unassigned code points.

We have had one prominent data file with multiple @missing lines since
before the start of Unicode 15 beta, and we emphasized this on the beta
review page <>.

Starting with Version 15.0, some data files in the UCD may contain multiple
@missing lines defined for the same property. This is currently the case
for DerivedBidiClass.txt. UCD file parsers will need to be updated to treat
the additional @missing lines like data lines. See UAX #44 Section 4.2.10,
@missing Conventions
<> for

Some weeks later we added multiple @missing lines to a couple more data

We are trying to innovate on Unicode data files in the gentlest way
