That "wadegile" and "pinyin" imply Latin script, hence "Latn" is redundant.

The issue? Peter, please be clear when you write. Which issue? "The issue" I raised is that "pinyin" and "wadegile" are by default Latin because there are no other possiblities of interpretation. Is that "the issue" to which you refer? Because I don't believe you have demonstrated that what I have said is incorrect. Nor have you demonstrated how your position (that "Latn" must be included) is "compelling".
