Proposal to add "Kore' as Suppress-Script for 'ko'

After checking out some rather basic links on Hanja and Hangul (, I ask:  is the status of Hanja in 
Korea in debate?  If so, I think we should hold off making a decision as to 
what the default orthography is, that is if [kore] stands for what I 
understand it does, a mixture of Hangul with some Hanja; while [hang] 
represents pure Hangul.

{And it seems to me maybe that it's o.k. to not have a default script (& 
thus to have documents where if the creator fails to tag these as [hang] or 
[kore] it's not completely obvious what characters are used)--while it would 
be nice to distinguish documents in Hangul from documents in the mixture of 
Hangul and Hanja, so long as the encoding of the characters is clear, the 
characters should display properly anyway (when people have the fonts).}
