    I agree that there should be a mechanism to identify and isolate IPA usage so that one
    can, for instance, apply appropriate typographic conventions, but 'script' isn't
    necessarily the best level to do this. In OpenType, a 'language system' tag seems to me an
    appropriate level, allowing IPA-specific glyph substitution within <latn> script processing.
