[[ As Eric Brunner-Williams pointed out on our first call, I had a pretty serious typo in the message I sent out yesterday. This is the corrected version. ]]

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 separable 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 similarity."

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.
