Perhaps "standardisation of Tai Tham string encoding"?  I'm not
entirely sure, because 'string' implies that one already has a linear
arrangement, but I am talking of how to select that string (more
precisely a trace, because of canonical equivalence), and the question
is the amount of zigzagging.  "String selection" might be technically
correct, but could be taken as meaning 'choice of words'.  Perhaps
"standardisation of Tai Tham character sequencing", but that suggests
visual orthographic rules.
