New submission from jack1142 <kuba.kuczys at gmail.com>:
`emoji-data.txt` and `emoji-variation-sequences.txt` files were formally pulled into the UCD as of Version 13.0  so I think that unicodedata as a package providing access to UCD could support those as well.
- `emoji-data.txt` lists character properties for emoji characters 
- `emoji-variation-sequences.txt` lists valid text and emoji presentation sequences 
Data from `emoji-variation-sequences.txt` can be used to ensure consistent rendering of emoji characters across devices  (`StandardizedVariants.txt` has a similar purpose for non-emoji characters).
I'm not entirely sure of the use cases for `emoji-data.txt`, but because it's also newly added in UCD 13.0.0, I figured I at least shouldn't omit it when making this issue.
