This might be a good time to point out that Cherokee is not required to
be displayed with the quaint, "Modern No. 20"-style glyphs shown in the
Unicode charts, with their wide serifs and high contrast between thick
and thin strokes. This was simply the font style that was in vogue
during the 1810s and 1820s, when Sequoyah modeled his letterforms after
printed Latin. Depending on the font, ᏣᎳᎩ and GWУ might turn out to be
perfect spoof buddies.
All of this applies equally to Deseret, BTW. Serifs and stroke weight
are not part of the identity of these characters.
