For clarity, any innovation by WG21 that deviates from the UAX31 guideline will turn my vote from a 'yes' to a 'no' for P1949.

This is not an area in which WG21 should be innovating.  People who think that UAX31 is too restrictive and/or not restrictive enough should be getting involved in Unicode in order to enhance UAX31.

For the record, I very strongly agree.
I further think that exploration of the optional parts of UAX ( allowing ZW(N)J  in specific contexts) should be done in a separate paper and hopefully by people familiar with the few concerned scripts and their use / users.
