    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.
