The RFC series come with an up-pointer reference mechanism for replacement versions. It appears that The Unicode Consortium does not. I'd guess the best we can do is to have some generic language associated with the reference that says "or a successor".

How about:

Reference to unallocated code points SHOULD NOT be treated as an error; the associated bytes SHOULD be presented in numeric form.

or some such?
