    [PA] True (at least for Neopunic, I can't comment for all others).
    Incidentally, I have asked some Punic scholars what they thought about
    this proposal and whether they find it useful (i.e. not unify Punic
    within Hebrew). Otherwise, personally, I can't really find anything
    faulty at first sight with Michael's proposal.
