    I see no reason why, if I understand correctly, the long s variant is
    to be limited to Fraktur-like styles.

    Please visit


    and enter e.g. the query

           "[[=s=]]k[[=a=]]rg"/x within body meta vol=xxxiii

    You will see several examples of long s in a non-Fraktur-like style.
