I don't buy it. It is trivial for an algorithm to tell that aβs is
IPA; it's impossible for an algorithm or even a human to tell whether
abs is IPA or plain old Latin characters. In my particular version of
Cleanicode, I would disunify IPA from Latin, but in the real world ,
if you're doing data processing on IPA, you've tagged it, either
explicitly or implicitly. What data processing are you doing that aβs
is a problem but not abs?
