I am forwarding the following response to R Wheelock's original posting from
Chris Harvey, who has just re-subscribed to this email list.
(Chris worked with Michael Everson on the "Proposal to encode additional
Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics"
[http://www.unicode.org/L2/L2008/08132r-n3427r-syllabics.pdf], and has long
been involved in work on indigenous languages and support for them in
keyboards, fonts, etc.)

syllabics. No language has ever used them.
(Note: In Canada, where syllabics are used, it's spelled Inuit, not Innuit.)
