We found nothing better for backwards compatibility in 4646.

IMO the best idea, after all it's not very different from
registrations of variants. 

An ideal example was the registration of "nqo", just get it 
right a.s.a.p.  And "fy" + "frr" + "frs" were counterexamples,
there was never any doubt that all sorts of Frisian are written
in the Latin script for a very long time.
