I think the view may be most succinctly expressed in this way:
The numerous and visually varied 22-letter semitic writing
systems all represent the same 22 abstract characters.
The Unicode Standard encodes abstract characters.
Ergo, only one set of codepoints is required to encode the
22-letter semitic writing systems.
