TUS4 describes "featural syllabary" as a script in which the symbols
represent syllables, but (unlike non-featural syllabaries) the syllabic
symbols "are not atomic; they can be built up out of parts that have a
consistent relationship to the phonological parts of the syllable."
I'm not sure how well this works, but at least the name can, I think, be
improved upon: given that definition, perhaps "analytic syllabary" (as
opposed to a "fusional" syllabary) would be a better label.
