Would it be correct to say that what is being discussed here is a character the same as U+FF61 HALFWIDTH IDEOGRAPHIC FULL STOP except having the EastAsianWidth property Na(rrow), same as plain old U+002E FULL STOP and the rest of ASCII?
That would seem to represent Chao's presumed intention: his usage in Gwoyeu Romatzyh is, after all, specifically in the context of a romanization.
