In the proposal I see:

e-1DE CHINESE ZODIAC DRAGON

and various other beasts

Wouldn't it be better to first encode a complete set of symbols for
the complete Oriental Zodiac (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake,
horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, pig) - a set of symbols which is
after all far older and better established than the Emoji set - and
then, map any Emoji symbols that overlap to those code points?

That may or may not have been better, but we can't wait for that to happen.

For the Emoji proposal, I _could_ propose code points for these "beasts" in a separate chart column, in anticipation of future completion of the set. (I made a note of that.)

The complete set of 12 animals is already in the Emoji proposal, it just
needs to be put into the correct order.
