That was my feeling too. The Kash alphabet definitely needs curves, as well as little circles; and thick/thin strokes don't matter in the basic form. Though come to think of it, it might be more attractive if there was such variation.

In that case, seems to me you're getting pretty close to something like High-Logic's FCP. Now...if yours won't cost $65.00.....(FCP used to be 40, then 50; I suppose now it's due to the Euro's appreciation). <political> One could legitimately fear that the US is heading for banana-republic-style inflation if _somebody_ isn't careful....
