The RFC is written to be version-neutral. I think it was just a mistake that
it refers to a specific version of the file.
The data in the UCD establish the exact definition of the different
properties, subject to the stability policies on
http://unicode.org/policies/stability_policy.html. That is, the derivation
of the property is not normative; the data is.
See also Section 2.1 in http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr44/#Simple_Derived.
Implementations should simply use the derived properties, and should not try
to rederive them from lists of simple properties and collections of rules,
because of the chances for error and divergence when doing so.
Definitions of property derivations are provided for information only,
typically in comment fields in the data files. Such definitions may be
refactored, refined, or corrected over time.
