I successfully rebuilt src:wine/4.0-1 and src:wine-development/4.2-2
with unicode-data 12.1.0~pre1-1 from experimental.

This requires a trivial update of the versioned build-dependency on
unicode-data.  But contrary to some previous updates, previous
unicode-data 12 seems to be easy, not changing its structure and thus
not requiring changes in Wine.

So I think Wine is ready for whatever course you choose from here:
a patched unicode-data 11 could be done with a binNMU,
unicode-data 12.1 with a trivially updated sourceful upload.
