Come on, Peter. You really need a curmudgeon's hat. Since you haven't got one, I'll put it on.
You obviously don't get it. What you propose is IMPOSSIBLE.
Now, since you don't believe me, please go and buy Arika Okrent's book http://www.amazon.com/Land-Invented-Languages-Esperanto-Dreamers/dp/0385527888/evertype-20 The Land of Invented Languages and read the chapter "John Wilkins and the Language of Truth". What you propose is just exactly what Wilkins proposed, and he could not succeed because it is IMPOSSIBLE.
So give over, already.
