But, if it has a letter unique to it, that he could use, then why not use it? =)

No problem! But this is interesting too. Not long ago I showed my cousin an old 5 Ruble banknote, and he said the writing looks strange with the "ya" and "yu" in it. I guess it's the same strangeness as a English speaker looks at Vietnamese Roman orthography with all the strange diacritics on it, or as a Vietnamese speaker would look at Icelandic with the funny "edh" and "thorn".
