    Yes, I would not think that special cases such as poetry, pedagogical
    use, and language transcription are intended to be covered by the

    I guess it hinges on whether the following criterion is supposed to
    apply to those cases:
    "whether it is acceptable in that language to always use spellings
    that avoid that character"
