Modifying Latin letters for English

I think alot to do for the same reasons for no spell changes. Tradition
more than anything else.. Also cause alot of people still look to Rome
as the center of the Universe or atleast Latin and Greek and they just
don't want to let go.
Of course as the 21st century comes on, English will be forced to change
some or be relagated to the dust bin.. As we adopt new words, many that
have to be spelled using the old forms, or adapted to new ways, which
means more and more forms that glog the grammer and like. Especially
when things are borrowed from lingos that use a latin based alphabet,
like Romanji (Japanese) and like..

True enough.  So why is the latin alphabet not modified for English?
