“The unification of these alphabets into a single Old Italic script
requires language-specific fonts because the glyphs most commonly
used may differ somewhat depending on the language being
represented.” — The Unicode Standard, “Old Italic”, page 336.
“For actual use, it might be advisable to use a seperate font for each
Runic system.” — Ibid, “Runic”, page 342.
I’d say it’s an unrealistic scenario.
