Then there is either a true ambiguity (perhaps resolvable
by context), or one or the other is a spelling mistake (and
just an apparent ambiguity). Compare again Khmer, where
the "register shift" characters sometimes can LOOK just the
same as one of the vowels. Actually using that vowel instead
would be a spelling mistake (or the result of a true ambiguity).
I guess the most that can be done about this, in the Unicode
standard, would be to add some suitable remark in the
character charts (the NamesList file), and some explanations
in the explanatory texts on the relevant scripts.
