The widespread use (as opposed to the mere existence) of a Phoenician
encoding in Unicode imposes costs on at least some Semiticists that
they do not wish to pay, at least without some assistance from Unicode.
Hence my desire to have Phoenician and Hebrew collate together at the
first level (more for searching than for sorting).
