In fact, the workgroup on the German dialectology characters (Teuthonista
and related systems) tried to contact dialectologists from the neighbouring
Scandinavian areas. N3555 was an early collection of the characters which
could have been addressed by such a collaboration.
However, while we got funding via the University of Passau (Bavaria,
Germany) for the German characters, we failed to get such from
Scandinavian sources. Therefore, we finished the work focusing on the
German characters.

While I have no special information on the Danish and Norwegian
dialectology characters, I know that the Swedish landsmålsalfabetet is
used in several publications from the 19th century until now. While it
was quite stable from the beginning on, it has undergone some minor
revisions, and there are variants. As a proposal must consider this in
detail, some research is necessary which must be funded. This is the
reason that landsmålsalfabetet, while being a definite candidate for
encoding, is not yet encoded.
