Currently, the LSTR has this record:

Type: language
Subtag: om
Description: Oromo
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Latn
Scope: macrolanguage

(There are a handful of Oromo languages encompassed by the Oromo macrolanguage.) IIUC, Latin script is currently preferred for Oromo orthographies,  but Ethiopic script was used until as recently as the 1990s. In view of that, does the suppress-script field make sense in this case?
