I had supposed that since these three varieties of Aramaic are put together
in Rosenthal's volume that you would have treated the scripts as mere
variants - but I was not sure which might be taken as a norm.

in which case separate encodings may be justified.
As to Hatra I only know what you find in Rosenthal's Handbook. In his Part
I/1 you have a selection of texts for all three, grouped together, and in
Part I/2 a vocabulary for all three together. There are of course references
for the sources. I hope you have access to this, An Aramaic Handbook, F.
Rosenthal, Harrassowitz, 1967; 4 volumes in all. Invaluable obviously for
your interests, but surely you know it ?
