Look through the bird stamps again. There are glyphic variants
there which would be inappropriate for a cent sign in any
font I know of, as well as fallback to a *capital* letter 'C',
instead of a *small* letter 'c' or abbreviations such as 'ct',
'cts', etc. The cent sign usage for the web, etc., smells like
fallback to me, rather than usage of the *intended* character
for the cedi. We have the originator of the thread, presumably
a native Ghanaian familiar with the cedi currency in daily
usage, proclaiming the distinction. That sounds to me like a set
of arguments that can be made.
Furthermore, from the point of view of the standard, addition
of currency symbols is low cost. It doesn't cause architectural
problems and has been done on a number of occasions based on
evidence not significantly different from that provided here
for the cedi sign.
