    Where are you getting this from?

    You asserted yesterday that "so many people will embrace a new Fraktur
    range." I asserted that there was no such demand. Now you say again
    that lots of people want a separate Fraktur encoding.

    Since you are the one trying to draw an analogy between Phoenician and
    Fraktur, in terms of demand for separate encoding, I think the burden is
    on you to prove that such a demand exists for Fraktur. Otherwise the
    analogy is pointless.
