It is not clear to me that the Latin GP should addressing the issues that
were sent to us by the Armenian GP. Here are a few thoughts on the subject.

1) The Integration Panel believes that the Armenian script is from the Latin
script, according to Section 3.8.3 of the MSR2.

2) 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

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.
