Fundamentally, the existence of a user community that wishes to exchange
data using that script. (Klingon, BTW, appears to fail this test.) In the
case of modern "invented" scripts (Shavian, Deseret) there's also historical
interest and existence of material in the script. Deseret was also proposed
to be the sacrificial lamb and start the population of Plane 1.
