    This isn't about them not looking *exactly* the same, it's about these
    existing modifiers being inconsistent with each other in visibly noticable
    ways. Nor are these characters mere styling that should require rich-text
    (including changing fonts) to represent. Consider the possibility that someone
    might wish to use Tonal units among whatever existing use of these
    inconsistently-superscripted characters.
