OK. But the short vertical line version is either a glyph variant or a
separate character. You have chosen to propose a glyph variant, rather
than a separate character as for Aegean: U+10100 AEGEAN WORD SEPARATOR
LINE. I'm not sure why the difference, but I will assume that you know
what you are doing. But is the existence of a glyph variant attested
only in one language sufficient evidence against unification? Cyrillic P
has different glyph variants in Russian and Serbian, but they are not
therefore considered different characters.
