It also doesn't account for boustrephedon writing direction either.
If Moon Code  is ever added as a Unicode script, then Unicode
may need to deal with the fact that this script is written today using
boustrephedon. The other boustrephedon scripts are, if I remember
correctly, either ancient and/or also usable with a non-boustrephedon
writing direction. On the other hand, it might just leave this detail to
a higher level protocol.
