    But have the others agreed with his judgments because they are convinced
    of their correctness? Or is it more that the others have trusted the
    judgments of the one they consider to be an expert, and have either not
    dared to stand up to him or have simply been unqulified to do so? It
    amazes me that all of the existing scripts have apparently been encoded
    without any properly documented justification apart from one expert's
    unchallenged judgments.
