Two things jumped out at me on a quick glance. First, I don't see why
unspecific forms should be encoded; if you want a nonspecific a, 0061
is the character. Secondly, Fraktur and Antiqua are different writing
systems with slightly different orthographies; instead of messing
around with variation sequences, just accept that. If they must be
distinguished, surely the long-s variation sequence could be used in
non-Fraktur fonts, like Blackletter and 18th century-style fonts.
