I lean in the same direction wrt the appropriateness question, though I'm waiting for the actual formal request. If it's a nonce thing without an established community, then we might question it. But if there is a community, even a small one, then it clearly is a distinct written form hence in scope and so would merit registration, IMO.

+1 also for ortograf
seems clear enough to me so long as the description says what it is!
As for Doug's objection, I have to say that I concur with Randy--
if it is used online, we register it.
