I think it's time for that special pleading now, viz:

The fact that we have allegedly authoritative statements pointing in
different directions for the script in use is pretty good evidence that
there is no single dominant script.  Even non-authoritative statements
claiming that most Hindi is written in Latin, or that most English is
written in Devanagari, are not to be found.

Formal proposal follows.

Possession is said to be nine points of the law,                John Cowan
but that's not saying how many points the law might have.       cowan at ccil.org
