Fear not - you are not alone.:-)
Not so very long ago, I put this case to IETF et al.:
> Irish has a reasonable requirement for 4 script
> encodings, as listed below:
> (a) Ancient (Ogham);
> (b) Traditional (Gaelic);
> (c) Modern (Roman);
> (d) Phonetic (IPA).
> What more does Ireland (NSAI) have to do to
> register script (d)?
The answer I got was that I should tag (d) as an orthography under
LTRU, instead of as a script under ISO 15924. Although I willingly
accepted that as an interim "fast fix", i still have no clue at all
as to how to implement that suggested fix (having all my life just
seen a-d above as distinctive scripts for writing Irish).
Let me know if you can understand whatever response you receive.
