Is Sindu also called the Indus script (used at Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro)
as shown in this proposal?:
The only approved way to issue a font for a script which has not yet
been accepted in Unicode, even if a proposal has been submitted to
Unicode, is to use the Private Use Area. This, of course, means that
the encoding will not be standard.
In order to make sure that users are well-served by a temporary,
Private Use Area encoding, everything about the font distribution
should include notes about the fact that the encoding is temporary
and non-standard. Some developers using the Private Use Area may
wish to provide a conversion table (or even a conversion utility) for
the font encoding as soon as the script becomes official in Unicode
so that existing documents can be converted to the new encoding.
(Naturally an updated font using the new encoding would need to
be provided, too. :-)
