That's my primary concern. Can we revisit the issue? I don't mind
encoding the characters, but it seems extremely unwise to assign them
irrevocable categories until we know more about the script. Personally I
do think we'll one day have more examples of this script. If I were sure
that wouldn't happen, I'd say go ahead.
