Then why is tengwar there, and Klingon proclaimed "unsuitable" for
encoding? Everyone's telling me the situation is the same with tengwar,
and yet it isn't. What is it about Tolkien scripts that makes them
suitable and pIqaD not? Artistic interest doesn't count.

I'm not trying to get tengwar/cirth *demoted*, but I would like someone
to explain to me why some fandoms/scripts seem to be better than others.
