Here, I still not stay convinced. Look at:
(German), where you find hooks to denote openness of vowels (like the
one contained in my draft proposal) which are definitely distinct from ogonek.
As far as I know now, these hooks are the ones related with the one proposed
in my draft.
I deliberately decided not to refer to Teuthonista in my proposal
draft, but this maybe was wrong.
Teuthonista is used by some universities in Southern Germany. The
users I have contacted are happy with their legacy 8-bit encodings.
Making a proposal to encode Teuthonista would probably rise
interesting discussions, as it would add Tibetan-like stacking to the
Latin script (unless you encode all possible vertical combinations as
single characters, as the legacy 8-bit encodings do).
(Sorry, I cannot continue the discussion at the moment. It is 1:00 AM
here now, and today I will leave for a two week vacation without
knowing whether I have Internet access there.)
