The basis for disunification is that it is a major glyph change, making it quite different from a character which is already ridiculously confusable with the pound sign. Moreover, like the RUPEE SIGN and the INDIAN RUPEE SIGN, the existing LIRA SIGN could be used for other (formerly used) lire (Italy, Malta, San Marino, Syria, Lebanon, the Vatican City, Israel) and the new glyph would be inappropriate for all of those.
