OK, I get the point. Unicode doesn't tell anyone what to do, but common
sense doesn't. Semiticists are allowed to continue to do what they are
doing if your proposal is accepted, but if they don't, in your opinion
they lack common sense. Well, I suspect this negative opinion might be
mutual, and your proposal might be ignored.
