Just a note: for any living(!) language, it is important that Unicode not mix scripts, but instead disunify characters based on script. The reason for that is that in important implementations, such as URLs (domain names) there are restrictions that prevent script-mixing in a single label.

If an othography were to use characters from more than one script, it will not be supported for things like domain names (at least in certain zones), because doing so introduces an element of risk to the domain name system.

This consideration is less relevant to dead languages and notational systems, because supporting them in URLs has never been a priority and users can live with a "best case" or partial solution. Living languages, esp. ones that have (or are excpected to achieve) significant literate populations, are a different matter.
