    Considering the CJK Ideograph Fragments thread, do you think that someone could successfully (and therefore should) propose to encode the building blocks of the roman alphabet?

    I ask because some scholars have shown that our letter forms are not completely arbitrary.[Primus2004] Someone might want to write about these featural components, someone else might want to create a new systematic letter based upon them. Both would need some, perhaps differing sort of encoding support.
