Right, and I'm not arguing for or against unifying Unifon with Latin, or
indeed for or against encoding it at all. I just don't think the glyph
variations Christoph was describing were tantamount to hiding totally
different characters behind a font hack.

Perhaps the use of the term "smart font" was unfortunate, as it might
evoke the type of Latin/Greek hack Karl mentioned.

I do worry about encoding even more letters that are intended to look
identical to Basic Latin letters, because of the spoofing issue.
