Surely usage is important factor here? A cipher is used to substitute
letters/characters/whatever in a piece of text that would normally be
written in some other script. The Enochian script, by contrast, is used
specifically for a constructed language. Fault Dee (or his angels) for
lack of imagination in construction if you like...
