Not at all. Ciphers are out-of-scope for ConScript by definition. But
*somebody* might want to create a PUA encoding for them (e.g. so they
can be intermixed with unenciphered Latin script, as the Disney-script
sites do).

I wanted to make sure nobody wasted their time, or yours or John
Cowan's, by preparing and submitting a ConScript proposal for these
