    Yes, it was intended to be a humorous segué and should be taken
    every bit as seriously as the demand for equal space.

    Having to maintain separate versions of fonts for true believers,
    other believers, and non-believers would be too much of a burden.

    (Seriously, such a mis-matched unification might tend to defeat
    the universal aspect of the Universal Character Set.)
