Yes, it's more the argument of what are the cultural and conventional
perceptions of people who would actually use whatever encoded characters
are provided. We know some Semitic paleographers perceived them as the
same; we have known that some others here perceive them as different.
This gives us a clue that there might be many others out there that have
the latter perception. It's especially interesting, given that this was
someone whose interests are closely related to those of the Semitic
paleographers we've heard from.
