Preventing people from using an orthography because you dislike their 
reason for using it shouldn't be one of the process goals. Where do you 
draw the line? Prescriptive orthography reform?

Now, the reverse would be true. If someone came and said "we've outlawed 
the following orthography/characters" that's not a reason for Unicode do 
mark them deprecated or to overturn stability and delete them.
