My view precisely.  Similarly, it would be spurious to merely state that 
Serb is in Cyrillic in the same way that Yiddish is in Hebrew script, and 
in the same way that French is in Latin script.  I think there's bit of a 
difference between the last two, but most importantly a massive difference 
between Serb:Cyrillic and the other two.
Just saying default-default-default is unfair to the data.
