It's definitely a good goal. But it's not rocket science to learn the 
different orthographies. If the languages are similar, then different 
orthographies are just a minor nuisance. As an example, German and Dutch 
also have different orthographies, but that's really a very minor issue 
when learning one language from the other even though these languages 
are very close.
