I think Doug is right. The point is, the situations are *not* analogous:
in the Fraktur case, there is nobody that wants a distinction; in the
Phoenician case, there appear to be people who do.
Doug's point is, if there are *lot* of people that will use a separate
Phoenician block, then that will validate that it was a useful thing to
do; but if there are *not*, then the unification-camp has little cause
for concern about existence of distinctly-encoded data.
