The original Endangered Alphabets subject line was hijacked, almost
immediately, into a thread about defining code pages within the Unicode
architecture, and then about the PUA. There really isn't any connection
here. Characters that belong to these "endangered alphabets" should be
encoded as normal Unicode characters if they meet the usual criteria.
No special mechanism needs to be invented.

As for encoding *languages*, see RFC 5646.
