John Cowan pointed out to me that IPA can reflect a broad or narrow
transcription of spoken language, depending on the amount of detail one
wishes (or needs) to indicate. Certainly most "phonetic" alphabets
wouldn't distinguish these two.
Considering how far this thread has drifted from its Subject line, at
least I can rest assured it will not result in an ill-conceived proposal
to add new characters to Unicode to help advocate the so-called
"dozenal" numbering system.
