Of course. One could have also switched fonts on Croatian, and gotten
Serbian, if I understand the reasons for the legacy encodings. I can switch
fonts from Arial to my Elder Futhark font and get runes. There are good
reasons to encode these separately, though, because they are different
alphabets. What I'm saying is that it doesn't matter how much a user
community wants the ability to exchange information, if an alphabet is a
cipher of Latin, it seems to me the *only* justification would be an
established need to depict both Latin letters and
(Enochian/Theban/whatever) together in *plain text*. If that doesn't cut it
as a justification, well, that's kind of what I meant.
