Hmmm, gives me an idea: For those people that want to unify, would it
help if all of the Phoenician characters were considered as variation
sequences of Hebrew characters, but for convenience we used
"pre-composed", atomic characters to represent each of those sequences?
Then people wouldn't actually need to use those sequences themselves,
'cause the atomic characters would do the same thing. But someone could
convert the atomic characters into the real variation sequences for
comparisons with Hebrew-cum-Hebrew, and since the variation mappings are
1:1, the same VS would be used for all sequences, and it could just as
well be a null, virtual VS, which would make it way easier to process
the data. So the conversion would be between the atomic
Phoenician-variation-of-Hebrew-sequence characters to the sequences of
virtual-VS + Hebrew characters. And we could tell the splitters that we
were encoding a distinct script just to keep them happy, but we'd be the
ones who really know what's happening.
I'm sure even Youtie would go for this.
