    It's already encoded. It's already not troublesome.

    Making up a word and using it over and over again
    does not mean that the word has meaning or that
    other people (especially experts in writing
    systems) are going to believe that it is a word.

    In any case we're encoding the significant nodes
    in your *diascript. Similarly, Swedish, Bokmål,
    Nynorsk, and Danish are distinguished, as are the
    Romance languages.
