First, of course there is a way to tag it ("zh-Latn"), but there is no
way to indicate it explicitly.
Second, yes, I realize this contradicts what I wrote on September 3. I
looked at the registration form this time, and scanned the e-mails
leading up to the decision to register. And yes, I realize that whether
Tongyong is or isn't included in 'pinyin', it isn't crystal clear from
the Registry record. Perhaps even I would agree that a Comments field
would be helpful here.
