    OTOH there does not seem to be much more than a superficial glyph variation
    between many of the Indic scripts which *have* been encoded separately.
    Compare for instance Kannada and Telugu which share a common origin in the not
    so distant past - and are still very near identical - yet are encoded in
    their own ranges.
