While the announcement doesn't specify (and may need formal
clarification, but that is up to Lisa), the usual criteria for
moving from Proposed-> Draft is that the documents be
sufficiently similar that an implementation of the first can be
considered an implementation of the new version so that
implementation reports are meaningful (it is stated quite
differently, but that is what it amounts to). Due to changes
whose implications we have debated endlessly, that is definitely
not the case here -- a fully-conforming implementation of
IDNA2003 is not a fully-conforming implementation of IDNA2008.
So, as far as I know, Proposed is the only possibility here.
