    Hello Ellaine,

    In all your searches and in your proposals, di you try to segregate the
    proposed additional characters into two separate categories: those needed
    for inclusion within many modern studies, and those only used in very old
    scripts with many unknown or ambiguous properties?

    I ask you that because not all the Hebrew Extended chracters may need an
    allocation in the BMP (in row U+08xx as suggested), and some may be placed
    in the SMP, in a separate Hebrew-Aramaic-Mandaic Extended block (including
    notably some punctuations signs or old numerals, or other diacritics needed
    for Phoenician and other extinct branches or variants).
