Brilliant idea. We can really economize on code-space that way. We can
use the same code-points for extended Latin and for Hebrew--just call
one of them something random, like ISO-8859-1, and the other some other
randomly-chosen name, like ISO-8859-8.

Can you show me how the Latin letters tlh slowly morph into the single
glyph for that phoneme? Or how it is that 'n' and 'ng' morph into very
different single glyphs?
