    None, nobody is trying to spell Liszt as Lit, or Goethe
    as Gte. The question here was what Wei 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 ", "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.
