Dear Paul,

Thank you for your constructive criticism. It's very welcome. Incidentally, I intend to wait till late on the 29th before submitting the comment.

I shall add a form of words which makes it clear that the comment is not necessarily the view of all members.

For me the reality is that there is at least one homoglyph, o, across the Armenian and Latin scripts (and in fact Cyrillic and Greek as well). One hopes that this is not enough to stop Armenian from being Separable, as it may slow their work down. As you say, the final decision is with the IP.

Of course, you can say what you want, but it is possibly confusing for you to say "Chris Dillon. Latin Generation Panel" rather than just "Chris Dillon". The Latin Generation Panel still does not know whether the Integration Panel believes that there can possibly be homoglyphs across separable scripts, so putting "Latin Generation Panel" at the end of your letter may give the impression that we as a panel agree with your assertion about the homoglyph.

Just to be clear: I truly don't know whether there can be homoglyphs across separable scripts, or whether Armenian and Latin are actually separable. Neither is clear to me from what we have heard so far from the Integration Panel, but I suspect we'll know much more after asking them. From the many written documents we have, I suspect that the answer to these questions are for the Integration Panel to make, not each individual Generation Panel.
