I could, but that'll probably already be pronounced /?/, as Arabic loans with _ayn_ are in Farsi and Urdu. I *could* use _ayn_ with three dots above, which Malay used before it went Latin. I'll have to add /p/, /tS/, /Z/ and /g/, the four added letters in Farsi, because of Ibero-Romance loans. Which means I'll write /g/ with _gaaf_ instead of _jeem_. I don't want to add TOO many letters to the abjad, since I'm not writing Sindhi here.
