That does not matter. The point is to identify the letters
unambiguously, and these are members of a class of letters which are
identified by the string CARRIER in their name. That is, there is a
class of CARRIER G-, CARRIER J-, and CARRIER L- letters to which
these belong even if not used in the Carrier language.
