I opine that it needs to be remembered that some authors of a novel that 
uses a conscript that the author has devised may be delighted for the 
conscript to become encoded in regular Unicode and regard it as a great 
honour and great recognition of the author's work, which indeed I opine 
that it would be.

I opine that that would not be a diplomatic, kind, or fair way to "tell" 
someone something.

If permission were given for Tengwar to become encoded into regular 
Unicode, I opine that that would be a great way to celebrate the work 
and art of J. R. R. Tolkien for as long as Unicode and ISO/IEC 10646 

What if the Tolkien Estate were offered the inclusion of a piece of text 
of a significant length together with illustrations about Tengwar and 
the work of J. R. R. Tolkien in The Unicode Standard, in a chapter of 
its own?
