Then why is tengwar there, and Klingon proclaimed "unsuitable" for 
encoding?  Everyone's telling me the situation is the same with tengwar, 
and yet it isn't.  What is it about Tolkien scripts that makes them 
suitable and pIqaD not?  Artistic interest doesn't count.

I'm not trying to get tengwar/cirth *demoted*, but I would like someone 
to explain to me why some fandoms/scripts seem to be better than others.
