"Hani" is "Han ideographs"
"Hira" is "Hiragana"
"Hrkt" is "alias for Hiragana + Katakana"
"Kana" is "Katakana".
"Jpan" is "alias for Han + Hiragana + Katakana"

"Is" means "probably will be published" since we still wait for the 
standard to be published. The RA will have some discussion about the 
list before it goes live. I am not sure those aliases will survive.
