Yeah, "Western folks" are nuts for exotica in every field (scripts and religions being my specialities) and will no doubt continue to create more scripts for tp, to be used God knows how. My point is just that, if we are to teach tp to others, we need to make no additional demands other than that of the language itself. If we could teach orally/aurally, this would not be a problem, but we teach mainly in writing and so, we should use the familiar orthography. (By parity of reasoning, I suppose that tp texts fro Russian speakers ought to use Cyrillic and perhaps they do, Asian cases are harder. But the Latin alphabet seems to have gotten just about everywhere, if the street signs in National Geographic articles are any evidence.) I'm not sure where this cultural xenophilia comes from: boredom, greener-grass syndrome, inferiority complex, etc., but it goes back thousands of years and persists.
