As far as I can follow Michaels arguments he says the following:

Disunification for scipts with 1:1 correspondence requires
- having distinct glyphs
- beeing a relevant script (e.g. historical important, because
  other scipts do also derive from it, not only the one with the 1:1

The later isn't true especialy for Klingon, but it's also not true
for e.g. fraktur, because fraktur is the derived script, not latin.
