Why take the risk of breaking currently working code this close (YMMV)
to the release...?

IMO, this is not the time for such a change in 22.x -- we know of one
place (flyspell) that was affected by the present behaviuor and it has
been fixed now.  

OTOH, you can install the change now on the unicode-2 branch for 23.x.
