I agree completely with you, Jon.
The great merit of KS is that it was designed inter alios by an expert in writing systems. This means that it is both
robust and doesn't leak.
I know this because I spend much of my time translating into KS.

The SWF must serve the Cornish language community as a whole and not merely the ideology of a section of the community. The SWF attempts to accomodate today's varying ideologies by incorporating Main, Traditional, Middle and Late variants. However, due to the hierachical nature of variation within the SWF, this is implemented in a prejudiced and unegalitarian fashion. This is a recipe for future strife.
