The big steps to hit a beta on Unicode are transcoders in R6RS I/O,
charsets that have more than 256 characters, some serious profiling,
and unicode-sized characters and strings in the virtual machine,
compiler, and REPL.  Also readline may need some work.

FWIW, I think the most imporant attribute of a 2.0 release is that it 
doesn't break the code by Guile's four big customers: Gnucash, 
GCC via Autogen,SND, and Lilypond.
