    Since its focus is Greek and touches on all manner of scripts from the
    region, including certain hieroglyphs, syllabaries, and so forth; and
    Phoenician is but one of the lesser, related topics, the non-use of the
    term "Phoenician" in the conference title isn't striking.

    If you mean wait on the Phoenician proposal rather than wait to float
    an archaic Greek proposal, then...

    If nothing relevant to Phoenician computer encoding comes out of this
    writing conference, should we wait for next year's conference?
