>Moreover, I would be more confident about the truth of this if
       I just knew what scripts are used by the 21 languages in my
       "Unknown" category. If someone could help categorizing them, I
       could at least do the sums, to discover who wins betwen Latin
       and CJK.

       I really wish that years ago the Ethnologue editors had
       requested contributors to provide information about writing
       systems used. At present, relatively few of the 6800+ entries
       indicate what script(s) are used for those languages that are
       written. I'll do what I can to promote the addition of such
       information in future editions, though the only real obstacle
       is gathering the information, and that just takes time.
