    James Kass pointed out that fears of large numbers of people adopting a
    Phoenician Unicode encoding would demonstrate the usefulness of the
    encoding. You responded that the same was true for Fraktur, even though
    there are no large numbers of people and no demand. You've sidestepped
    the question.
