I don't think it's relevant to the discussion of the two main letters
I propose, unless I'm missing something.
My proposal does consider future developments as part of the broad context,
so that the encoding and corresponding tools can be consistent in the
short, medium and long term.
But its major aspect for Tifinagh is to reflect current modern use.
In what way would
a) making no change
b) adding some different letters
be better than what I have proposed? I'd be interested to see what people
have to say about a unified alphabet (and less fragmented Unicode-based
toolsets). Incidentally, the current arrangement actually seems to lack
complete support for a Berber Academy repertoire despite supplying a
couple of the letters.
