th ligature that might be created by simply overlapping the
letters. If the name of the proposed U+1D7A were changed
to LATIN SMALL LETTER VOICED TH DIGRAPH then
the character could also be used for the Pittman ITA, or
other schemes for representing a voiced th (as does the
example given to support U+1D7A in N2645) without requiring
a new character to represent the same basic idea.
I think I have enough documentation that I can a prepare
a proposal for the Pittman ITA, but I think that it would be
better for the voiced TH digraph to be unified with U+1D7A.
The two would never be used together and both express
the same basic concept of a voiced th sound in English.
Such a unification would of course be dependent upon
a change in name for U+1D7A in the period before it was
