None, nobody is trying to spell Liszt as Lißt, or Goethe
as Göte. The question here was what Weiß can put on an
all uppercase tombstone if they don't wish to be confused
with WEISS, or what to do with MASSE MASZE. Or a GROSZER
UND STILLER OZEAN if they don't like the shorter PAZIFIK.
There are already enough solutions, "just use ß", "ignore
the issue and use SS", "try SZ if you worry about SS", or
"design your own glyph variant". It's unnecessary to go
as far as "roll your own code point, and register u+1E9E"
when that foreseeable causes havoc.
