Also we can note that "mgp" (Eastern Magari) is severely endangered
according to multiple sources include Ethnologue and the Linguist List.
This is still not the case for Western Magari (mostly on Nepal, not in
Sikkim India), where evidence is probably easier to find (where the
encoding of a new script and disunificaition from Brahmi, may then be more
easily justified with their modern use, and probably unified with the
remaining use for Eastern Magari).
