Additional to Latin script: i.e, much of the Latin range, _and_ THETA
as you pointed out yourself. IPA uses not _just_ Latin script.

Icelandic does use _just_ Latin script: ETH is a Latin script
Several people would like to see a script code for IPA, not just me.
It doesn't mean that they want to describe IPA as a script
particular, just that they want a script code for it, and have cited
various user needs.
