Depending on the level of account you have, most things will fall into one 
of the following buckets:

Guest accounts receive 1 vote.  Any data item with only 1 vote will stlil 
go into CLDR as draft="unconfirmed".

Regular vetter accounts from Unicode member organizations receive 4 votes. 
 Most locales in CLDR only require 4 votes for the item to be 
draft="approved" ( which is the meaning when no draft status is 
specifically mentioned in the data ).  The only exceptions to this are the 
"high visibility" locales, ( examples would include things like German, 
French, Arabic, or Chinese ).  For these locales, 8 votes are required in 
order to make a change ( 2 set of eyes from 2 different organizations ).

TC member accounts receive 20 votes, and are used only to resolve disputes 
when necessary, and also to vote on high visibility items that require a 
TC review.

I asked "will" they be removed? and by that I mean will they get into svn 
repos or not?
