Thus spake Michael in N2746:
The twenty-two letters in the Phoenician block may be used,
with appropriate font changes, to express Punic, Neo-Punic,
Phoenician proper, Late Phoenician cursive, Phoenician papyrus,
Siloam Hebrew, Hebrew seals, Ammonite, Moabite, and Palaeo-Hebrew.
So font difference does seem to be needed, yes.
