Everything's a non-starter.  Until it begins.

Is this a casing orthography?  (Please see attached image.)

We've seen where typewriter kludges enabled users to represent the 
glottal stop with a question mark (or a digit seven).  Unicode makes 
those kludges unnecessary.

But we're still using typewriter kludges to represent stress in Latin 
script because there is no Unicode plain text solution.
