That's what I said: 8 years ago already.

And before that, does it mean that texts have to use the "Brah" code for
early classification if they are tentatively encoded with Brahmi (and
tagged as "mgp-Brah", which should limit the impact, because there's no
other evidence that "mgp", the modern language, is related directly to the
old Brahmi script, when the "mgp" still did not even exist) ?
