The first issue with Unifon is whether it is to be encoded at all.
Given that it is a stable system since its design in the 1950s, and
that references to it are found quite often, the answer probably is
"yes". But the case has to be made, providing evidence.

Then, it seems appropriate to consider it is a script separate from Latin,
like Lisu http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/UA4D0.pdf .
Otherwise, we end up with a number of uppercase Latin letters
with no lowercase counterpart. This would be a problem due to
Unicode stability policies, which do not allow to encode a lowercase
counterpart later for an already encoded uppercase letter.
