No No No!!! :-))) At least some scripts use a single V-carrier, modified with the V-diacritics (Bugis/Makassar for one; of course they have no diphthongs). Aside from initial position, the V symbols are not much used word-medial-- /kia/ for ex. would be written K(i)-Y(a); but /kai/ would be K(a)-A(i) BTW, I didn't see a V-killer symbol. Or don't you need one? I note in the full Babel text you have only final m, n, ng, which are taken care of (and one -r , and I see a -s in your sig.)

Might it be possible that the box script is (or could be tweaked to be) simplified versions of the more ornate one?
