    This does not invalidate the default table. It would be relatively easy to add script permutation on
    top of the default table or any tailoring by applying an appropriate permutation on primary weights.

    In other words, it does make sense to put together a reasonable default table, including reasonable
    intra-script ordering of non-Latin scripts, even if the default script order does not match a
    certain requirement.
