The same code points are used for latn, latg, latc and latf. However it seems to
me that this fact increases the value of giving information solely about the
script (since it allows us to determine the appropriate fonts to render the
relevant glyph variants) or in having script as a separate tag (yes, I know
I've lost that battle, I'll shut up about it again).
