I think it's wrong. Kore is an alias for two scripts. This
Suppress-Script thing, how is it to know that a paragraph in Chinese
with three words in Hangul in the middle isn't really Chinese and not
Korean? Kore makes sense from the point of view of ISO 15924, but
not, I think, in terms of the automated stuff Suppress-Script is
supposed to do.
I could be wrong. But my impression is that this request is unsafe.
