Quick comments here (mostly for a wider reading audience):

1] Need to include Greek in the Cyrillic/Latin (or "ASCII" as we call it
here in this discussion) as being Homograph rich across all three from
visually identical or near identicals

2] I used to believe that there was a bright line between all Cyrillic and
all Latin/ASCII - and I learned through the process of many wise people
like Yuri and Dusan spending time to evolve my thinking that these may be
intermixed under perfectly normal use, and this also varies by region.  We
should not assume all of one or all of the other.
