I have made comments that, if heeded, would make significant changes to
the current proposal for the Tengwar. As usual, it would be best to
involve more experts and potential users in order to resolve these issues.

In short, the alternative I suggest involves handling Tengwar mode
distinctions outside the normal text stream, allowing search algorithms to
function properly independent of mode.
