Are either of them actually used except in fantasy type situations?
Perhaps Deseret had a very small amount of more serious use from the
short time when it was promoted for actual use, but its current use
seems to be for fantasy only. Shavian may also have been designed for
serious use, but its actual use has been for fantasy only. I suppose
their very limited historic use justifies them being encoded in the SMP.
But, while I don't object to encoding of Tengwar and Cirth, they are
entirely fantasy scripts.
