And of course codings will map some Braille forms to symbols or punctuation - making Lo inappropriate even if we were to assume a particular coding was being used to map Braille to a particular script.

The only justification mentioned so far for changing Braille from So to Lo is to be able to use Braille in identifiers. I'm not sure why someone whould want to use Braille in this way, for a start how would these identifiers be translated into Braille?
