Does this really matter in light of OTF and PUA? At least that is what
I  have  been  told --  that  properly  encoded  data will  render  as
traditional  script when fonts  containing traditional/old  glyphs are
used,  and will show  as reformed  script when  fonts without  the old
characters are used.

If I have understood the above correctly, I think we can really leave
it to the font developers to decide what fonts they develop, and to
the public to decide what script they will use.
