In your opinion. Or have you consulted with experts on this one, as you
failed to do on Phoenician? If so, you might be able to cite a body of
opinion that it is a separate script. There are clearly some opinions
that it is not. It is for the UTC to decide whether (in Unicode terms)
it should be encoded as a separate script or not. I am sure your opinion
will be given the appropriate weight in their discussions.

By the way, I know nothing about Fraser.
