Don't think I haven't tried. The KLI worked on the Klingon in the Star
Trek: Discovery series, and thereby had some contacts in the Paramount
castle. And I wrote to them, who said I should write to others, who
said I should write to others, and so on, and I climbed the ladder until
the top person, that people seemed to agree would be the one who could
say so, and who never answered back (despite several attempts—but not
lots and lots to the point of spamming). Does that mean such an
approach is hopeless? Not necessarily, but does that mean the approach
here should be hopeless?
Thing is, Paramount also has no motivation to do anything about this.
Why should they care? Who cares about people being able to write stuff
on computers? Oh yeah, Unicode.
