It's a dummy script used to label Unicode combining marks, which "inherit"
their script property from the base character they are combined with.
For example, COMBINING ACUTE has a script property of Zinh: when it
follows an Latin A, its effective script is Latn, but when it follows
a Cyrillic A, its effective script is Cyrl.
It's useless for tagging documents.

Most languages are dramatically underdescribed, and at least one is
dramatically overdescribed. Still other languages are simultaneously
overdescribed and underdescribed. Welsh pertains to the third category.
