[Latingp] For consideration at LGP first meeting (Agenda point 4)

This request is fairly confusing, at least to me, on three counts:

1) Section B.3.4.2 of the LGR Procedures document says "Finally, in
investigating the possible variant relations, Generation Panels should
ignore cases where the relation is based exclusively on aspects of visual

2) The Armenian script does not appear to be related to the Latin script in
the sense of the LGR rules. The characters that might have similar usage in
the scripts mostly look completely different.

3) Even ignoring the previous two points, the request seems to be for
cross-script variants, such as for an Armenian letter that looks like a
Latin letter. The "Guidelines for LGR" document indicates that cross-script
variants might be created, but gives no hints about why we should do that
given that the root zone will consist of labels of a single script
(according to Section A.3.1).

This feels to me like the Armenian GP's submission is not related to ours,
so we should not be commenting on it.
